This is a question for people who live outside Romania. i am just being curious about how much does the world know about our country, and what does the world know exactly. have we got any reputation,any distinctive marks? waiting for your replies...just take this as an experience exchange. :)

oh yeah...romania....the place of all posibilities...i know this isn`t adressed to me...because i live in romania..but i just felt the need to tell u some things about romania...i love this country...i love it beacause this is the place i was born..here are my friends...my family ..my house..my bed..my pillows...here is my hole life....romania is a beautiful country with a glorious history...there are many things to visit...the people here are warm.. hospitable...but despite that our country hasn`t a good reputation because the forgein people see only the bad things...and if someone has done something wrong..like stealing,killing..or commiting an offence...and if that person happens to be a romanian..well people will think that all romaninan are like that...they always missjudge us..that`s why romanina has a bad reputation...

What i know of Romania is that it's a poor country and that it has Orphanages that are full of abondoned children looking for adoptive parents.I see that the state of affairs are regularly on CNN about what people should do to help.

I know it's unfortunate to only hear the bad things about any country but then the media is responsible broadcasting what they think is news. I would love to only hear the wonderful things that go on in the world on the news.

I was thinking...people all over the world..(who know about Romania) including romanian ppl....has been concentrating about the bad stuff....and we left all our country's beauty unknown.....We simply forgot about it...and about all of your achievements ..I think this is the saddest thing that happened in Romania ...

probably not as much as i should. romania used to be part of the communist bloc. it is also where the ledgand dracula was born. in real life he was vlad the impailer who was a romanian prince known for killing his enemies in brutal, bloody ways. it is said that the castle is still haunted.

i know that this legend of Count Dracula made Romania known all over the world but let me give you a piece of info that most foreigners don't know:as a matter of fact, Vlad Tepes (the impailer, as you know him)was in fact a very good leader of those times and had an immense power over his enemies...it's true what you know about the way he used to kill his enemies that were the Ottomans who tried to steal our territorries(no hard feelings though :D). and the castle....it's known as the castle of Vlad Tepes but as a matter of fact it was the prison where Vald tepes was held for a while.
