Petrus, one of our users from Romania has sent us those insights about his interesting country, for which we have just added a new language version of MyHeritage. Petrus also wrote about us on his blog.
A few days ago, a Scotsman left me a message in my Youtube Inbox, telling me how much he loves Romania, Brasov especially.
How can you not love this country once you've eaten traditional dishes and drunk the plum brandy?
Believe it or not, Romania is the continental champion when it comes to plum production.
Maybe beer is the most consumed drink here in Romania, but nothing compares to that alcoholic beverage traditionally called tsuika and the wines from the vineyards in the south of the country.
Of course, the Romanian people are behind all of these. Most of the Romanians
...can talk about football, music, politics, gypsies and other minority inhabitants, legends, places, and why not globalization and economic crisis. It's all about socializing using every subject possible.
Regarding the cultural heritage, last year we were in the middle of world's attention because Sibiu was the European Capital of Culture.
Maybe artist like Sanda Wigl, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Teodora Enache, Fanfara 10 Prajini, Gheorghe Zamfir already spread worldwide part of our folk music, but that is not enough to know Romania.
Once you read about Romania, you will see that this is the country where you can see the sunset on the beach, the country where you can breath fresh air in the mountains, the country where traditions blend with capitalism in a strange way.
