Any geography book will tell you that Romania is located in the south-east corner of Europe, where the river Danube meets the Black Sea.
And each of these traits shaped the people accordingly. But no matter the differences (spanning from dialects and cuisine to architecture and religion) they have one thing in common: hospitality. Break away from the fast, agitated, fussy life of the cities and you’ll easily find someone to offer you a cosy bed and a delicious meal…
So, great landscapes, cultural diversity and welcoming people. It sounds almost too good to be true.
And examples can go on, in the same note of decaying greatness.
