BBC: Romania profilePosted by Admin in About Romania on Jun 19, 2013 .
The largest of the Balkan countries, Romania has dramatic mountain scenery and a coastline on the Black Sea.
It has seen numerous empires come and go from the Roman, to the Ottoman, to the Austro-Hungarian.
After World War II the country was under communist rule although the leadership pursued a foreign policy independent of that of the Soviet Union.
Romania, a slower developer than other former communist countries of eastern Europe, took a major step away from its past when it was one of seven countries to join Nato in late March 2004. Its strategic location and Black Sea air and naval bases make it attractive to the...

The Complete Guide To: Transylvania
There's much more to Dracula's homeland than creepy castles and blood-soaked myths. Lucy Mallows uncovers a region so charming that even Prince Charles has a house there
Transylvania: a real place?
Some people assume Transylvania is an invention of Bram Stoker, ripened by bloodthirsty Hollywood directors. However the "land beyond the forest" – as the Latin name translates – is genuine enough. This region, three times the size of Wales, is located right in the heart of one of the EU's newest members. While the Romans called it Trans-Sylvania, the name is Ardeal in Romanian, Erdely in...
Bran Castle - HistoryPosted by Admin in About Romania on Jun 19, 2013 .
The Bran fortress was built on a cliff between Magura and The Hill of the Fortress, its position conferring an outstanding view towards both the hills of Moeciu and the ones from the Land of Bârsa. The building of the fortress was imposed by strategic and economic reasons. The strategic reasons underlined by the expansion of the Ottoman Empire which, by the end of the XIV century, began threatening the south-eastern borders of Transylvania; the economic reasons, given by the fact that the commercial road, one of the most important access ways connecting Transylvania to Wallachia,...

Romania: Maramures is a rural fairytale by The TelegraphPosted by Admin in International press, About Romania on Jun 19, 2013 .
Sarah Shuckburgh travels through space and time to Maramures and an ancient Romanian way of life.
I wake to the sound of crowing, clanking and lowing. As chickens peck in the dust just beneath my window, a dozen cows are shuffling through the village, their bells a discordant jangle. At each house, another cow joins the throng. Like a dog-walker or childminder, one villager is taking his neighbours' cows off for a day's grazing.
This is the village of Hoteni in Maramures, one of the remotest corners of the European Union, where villagers have preserved a way of life which most of the continent cast off centuries ago. Too far from...
The Prince of TransylvaniaPosted by Admin in International press on Jun 19, 2013 .
His Royal Highness has bought three properties in Transylvania and is keen to preserve the regions environment. After all, in rural Romania, organic farming is a way of life. Would you like to join him?
Theres a corner of a foreign field a far-off land with a legendary name where the heir to the British throne has chosen to buy not one, not two, but three properties over the last couple of years. Its a place completely at odds with his Aunt Margarets famous house on Mustique, in the sun (and gin-) soaked Caribbean.
There's sun here, for sure, but instead of gin you'll find a potent local brandy made from plums and distilled in...

A flowery trip in time through Transylvania by The TelepgraphPosted by Admin in International press, About Romania on Jun 19, 2013 .
Transylvania, in central Romania, had been on my list of places to visit for a while, so when I read Along the Enchanted Way, William Blacker’s lyrical account of his time living there, I knew I had to go before it changed forever.
The opportunity to visit a place where the flower-rich meadows had never been ploughed, where the horse and cart was still the normal mode of transport, and hay was cut and stacked by hand was irresistible. In Britain we have television programmes recreating these things, but in Transylvania it’s still an everyday reality.
Experience has taught me that expert help and local knowledge are invaluable on...

Transform your view of Romania and follow Prince Charles to TransylvaniaPosted by Admin in International press on Jun 10, 2013 .
Our Royal Family's roots can be traced back to Vlad the Impaler, the real-life ruler who inspired Transylvania's Count Dracula vampire legend. Or so it is claimed. Certainly, Prince Charles has a great affection for this region of Romania. He first visited in 1998 and now has a portfolio of properties.
Restoration work will soon finish on his latest acquisition, a 150-year-old estate in Zalanpatak village that has 37 acres and a five-bedroom house. The Prince will let it out as a guesthouse when he's not there, as he does with another Transylvanian property he owns.
So just what is the appeal of this central Romanian region, best...

The Prince of Wales' properties in RomaniaPosted by Admin in International press on Jun 08, 2013 .
The Prince of Wales has bought and renovated properties in rural Romania to help protect the unique way of life that has existed for hundreds of years through the promotion of sustainable tourism.
His Royal Highness has a long-standing interest in Romania and has visited the country regularly since his first visit in 1998.
The Prince has said that he was particularly moved by the plight of the remarkable fortified Saxon villages in Transylvania which were built centuries ago by German settlers, who were encouraged to go there to help withstand Tartar and Turkish invasions.
Sadly, due to mass migration, many of these villages have...
Transylvanian manager of Prince Charles' homes defends RomaniaPosted by Admin in International press on Jun 10, 2013 .
A Transylvanian count and acquaintance of the Prince of Wales has said described attacks made on Romania during the horsemeat scandal as hypocritical and underscored by an anti-Romanian bias fuelled by immigration fears.
Count Tibor Kalnoky, Baron of Korospatek, who manages two rural properties owned by the Prince in Romania, vented frustration at the rapidity Western Europe pointing the finger of blame at Romania after it emerged that its abattoirs had supplied French companies some of the horsemeat that later masqueraded as beef.
"Isn't it just typical that when you have a scandal that involves the name of Romania everybody is going...
