The cliches world is never-ending, it makes our world what it is!
I’m not against stereotypes, but only enjoy funny ones like All French men are romantic, or In Italy, they eat Pizza for breakfast!
A beautiful country like Romania doesn’t deserve cliches like “everyone in Romania is a Gypsy” that affects its tourism. Instead, of that, did you know that the real Dracula lived in Romania?
Let’s get to know this mysterious country.
Recent history of Romania
Romania was affected by both WW I and WW II.
The Soviet Union occupied the country from 1944 to August 1958 and forced its King to resign. It was a dark time for Romanians. After a few years, they were like, “Enough is enough!” and revolted which transformed the political system for good.
The government tried to become closer to the West and eventually joined NATO and the EU but because of the corruption and poor economy, Romania is not allowed to use the Euro as its currency.
People in Romania
Romanians and Moldovans are basically the same race with different terminals. More than %89 of the population identifies as Romanian with the biggest minority being Hungarian.
People are friendly and nice (They mind their own business mostly) and true meat lovers! If you ever visit it there, you’ll see big barbecues with chunks of meats on them and people standing in line with a plate of bread and mustard in their hands.
What to do in Romania
