"Welcome to my homecountry" Romania by codrutz

Romania Travel Guide: 6,992 reviews and 22,693 photos

I think it is always hard to build a country page on VT. And it is as much hard and even more to build the page of your home country, that's because you'd want to try to make it the best (at least better than any foreigner's page about your country), to guide the ways of the fellow travelers inside the place you should know best.

I strongly invite you to read about Romania on the Romania Tourism website

You can find a list of cities in Romania, ordered by population here

Romania has a long and interesting history, one can study only this and be amazed - check it out here: wiki history of the Romanians (in English).

Romanian grilled meat

Romanians are gourmands and we pride on the traditional foods. Most of them involves cooked meat (grilled/fried). Barbecues are an usual weekend form of spending time with family and friends, outside cities Romanians flocks to start barbecues (Romanian word for barbecue: GRATAR-sing./GRATARE-pl.) and the meat on spikes is called FRIGARUIE (don't know the English word for this)

Peles Castle in Sinaia

Peles is one of the nicest castle in Europe. It's a must see while in Romania. Spend some time also in the surroundings of the castle where you can have a coffee on a terrace overlooking the castle.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Warm people, still natural, nice places
  • Cons:Not so developed because of the comunist era
  • In a nutshell:It's my home country

    Wow!! What a yummy page!! I've had Sarmale and a few other dishes cooked by Romanian friends, delicious!! Interesting that Slovaks and Arabs have their own version of Sarmale which tastes very similar.
