It is wrong to compare it to the US beacuse Romania has a history, unlike America. Gas is much more expensive because we do not drop bombs on arabs to get cheap gas which we irratioanlly consume driving 5-6 liter engines in huge useless pick-up trucks.
Chicks are actually very very HOT. Unlike other comments said, people have cars that they drive around. They also walk, because distances are not ridiculously huge like in America.
Romania is famous for its leading scientists and researchers.
It also has a great soccer team and awsome gymnasts.
In romania people feel free because the rules are not riduculous as in other countries and people have a great social sense so they behave in an educated and nice manner not because the laws tell them to, but because they fell like it.
People who are not open minded and too much used to an artificial political and social system will not see the beauty of this country
The food is good, the women are pretty, and it's one of the few places in Europe where Americans are still liked.
Romania is in southeast Europe and is slightly smaller than Oregon, with a beautiful landscape. The Carpathian Mountains divide Romania's upper half from north to south and connect near the center of the country with the Transylvanian Alps, running east and west. North and west of these ranges lies the Transylvanian plateau, and to the south and east are the plains of Moldavia and Wallachia. In its last 306 km, the Danube River flows through Romania only. It enters the Black Sea in northern Dobruja, just south of the border with Ukraine.
Most of Romania was the Roman province of Dacia from about A.D. 100 to 271. From the 3rd to the 12th century, wave after wave of barbarian conquerors overran the native Daco-Roman population. By the 16th century, the main Romanian principalities of Moldavia and Walachia had become satellites within the Ottoman Empire, although they retained much independence. The nation became a kingdom in 1881 after the Congress of Berlin.
Romania joined NATO in 2004, and in 2005 the EU approved the entry of Romania in 2007. Final acceptance into the EU will require a number of reforms, including increased law enforcement and environmental measures and the protection of the rights of the Roma minority.
The great majority of the inhabitants speak Romanian, although there are also sizable minorities speaking Hungarian (8%) and German (2%). Other ethnic groups include Ukrainians, Serbs, Croats, Gypsies...
