Guide To Romania: Introduction
You’d never know that something exists if you don’t live there. The world is made up of a very diverse culture that needs to be discovered, wandered and be remembered.
Romania used to be synonymous with Nicolae Ceausescu and its political past. But a million of other interesting things deserve discovery and recognition.
If you once travelled Europe, you might have read or heard of a lot of beautiful praises about the United Kingdom, Spain, France or Italy. But very few accounts are untold about Romania, perhaps with the exception of Dracula and Transylvania. This explains my intense desire to unravel Romania in front of your eyes.
Romania is filled with rich history, beautiful natural landscapes and splendid cities that you need to see. There are a lot of landmarks that contribute to its great architectural history.
The country is certainly not poor contrary to some rumors. While many will quip about the poverty that was prevalent after the Cold War, the Gross Domestic Product was reported by World Bank to be around $267 billion with a per capita income of $12,476 on 2011. The country also has a high growth and low unemployment rate. Inflation? That’s nonsense as it declines in Romania. Taxes? The Romanian government set a 16% flat rate for both personal and corporate incomes, which makes it a lesser financial burden in the European Union.
The country is very safe too, unless someone told you about the rubbish about Dracula. That is nonsense (we will go about this myth soon.) Rape, abduction, robbery or other high crimes exist but most of the time they are seen in the news infrequently. Even undomesticated dogs shouldn’t be a threat to you. Ask many Europeans who travelled there and they will tell you that Romania is a safe place to visit.
It is best to travel Romania armed with a lot of knowledge about this beautiful country. I hope you learn with me as I share with you tons of wonderful insights about this country. You maybe someone lost in the ruins trying to make sense of how to set a marvelous adventure in this country. I wish this site to be of a big help to you.
