About Romania and the capital, Bucharest
|The national flag of Romania||Borderline map of Romania|
|Flag description: three equal vertical bands of blue (hoist side), yellow, and red; modeled after the flag of France, the colors are those of the principalities of Walachia (red and yellow) and Moldavia (red and blue), which united in 1862 to form Romania; the national coat of arms that used to be centered in the yellow band removed. Note: now similar to the flag of Chad, whose blue band is darker; also resembles the flags of Andorra and Moldova.||Border length: total: 2,844 km. Border countries (total: 5): Bulgaria 605 km, Hungary 424 km, Moldova 683 km, Serbia 531 km, Ukraine 601 km.|
Arriving in Bucharest (Bucureşti), most tourists want to leave as quickly as possible, yet to do so would mean missing out on Romania’s most vibrant city. The capital does have its fair share of charm and elegance – it just takes a little seeking out. Among the ruptured roads and disintegrating buildings, you’ll find leafy squares, beautiful, eclectic architecture (albeit often crumbling), and dressed-up young Romanians bringing a touch of glamour to the surroundings. What’s more, it’s a dynamic city, changing faster than any other in Romania as new office towers sprout up and shops and bars multiply. Head south of the center into the Centru Civic, and you’ll come across myriad unfinished projects from Ceauşescu’s reign – seeing the accurate scale of what a dictatorship can set in motion is something you won’t forget, and reason enough to spend a day or two in the capital.

Romania is a fairly large republic that shares borders with Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia (Serbia) and Hungary. In the southeast, the republic’s coastline stretches for approximately 200 kilometers or 125 miles along the shores of the Black Sea.
The main topographic feature is the broad swathe of the Carpathian Mountains that dominate most of the country. In the center of the country, almost enclosed by the mountains, is Transylvania, a high and extensive plateau of uplands and forests. There is a continuation of the Hungarian Plain or Great Alföld in the west while further plains lie to the east, southeast and south of the mountains. The Danube (Dunav, Dunarea), with its tributaries, is Romania’s most important river. Bucharest (Bucuresti), Romania’s capital and largest city, is situated in the southeast of the country.
Farmland takes up about 43 percent of the total land area. The cultivated areas are mainly on the plains, particularly in the Danubian basin. Vineyards for Romania’s wine industry flourish on the more sheltered lower hill slopes. Valuable timber resources are provided by Romania’s extensive forests. The country has both marine and freshwater fishing industries.
Mineral reserves include petroleum and natural gas, coal, lignite, iron ore, lead, copper, aluminum (bauxite) and zinc — electricity generated from oil, coal, gas, hydroelectric and nuclear facilities and a small amount exported. Manufactured products include cement, construction materials, iron, and steel. Tourism is a growing industry in Romania and an important contributor to the economy. Visitors come to enjoy the Black Sea resorts, the birdlife of the Danube delta and the spectacular mountains and forests of the Carpathians and Transylvania.
