I'm a Romanian.

Romania is in south-eastern Europe. It has borders with Hungary and Serbia to the west, with Ukraine and Republic of Moldova to the north-east and with Bulgaria to the south.

Its total area is two hundred thirty-seven thousand five hundred square kilometres.
21.5 million of inhabitants live nowadays in Romania.

Its currency, the Romanian leu, which is subdivided into 100 bans (ban, in singular) equals 0.23 €.

There, the Romanian is the first language, which comes from Latin, but there are other languages around Romania which are slaves.

Bucharest is the capital city of Romania, but there are other important cities, like Constanta, Alexandria, Oradea or Sibiu.

Romanian speciality dishes include grilled meatballs, meat wrapped in cabbage leaves, pork stew with garlic and onions and doughnuts made with cream and cheese.

Famous people from Romania were the Count Vlad Dracul (in tales), the writer Eugène Ionesco, the composer George Enescu, the gymnast Nadia Comăneci and the football player Mutu, who plays for the Fiorentina.

Now, Romania has a democracy, although before the final of the Cold War it was a dictatorship

Another important fact of Romania is the entry into First World War in 1916 with the central axis (Germany and the Austro-Hungarian empire).

Finally, my country has been a member of the European Union since 2007.
