What does Romania offer to the world?

Posted on November 29, 2010

First of all... this would be a great question for you all, our clients, past, present and future to answer.

Why do you come to Romania? Some will answer just for the fun of it, others for their family, business, their lover :), everybody has got a reason. It would be great it you could share it to the world, so, we, Romanians, could realize the amount of reasons that manage to attract foreigners here.

I have a good reason for which I started to ask myself this question. Working everyday with foreigners, I just saw in them the need for money, no offense! They are investors here, so they have the right to think only of money. But, like in every field, activity, every day life, you realize that there are also exceptions.

I had the luck, the opportunity of meeting some fine investors, that came to inspect their "little" affair here, in the center of the country. We are talking about grown up men with fortune, with life experience that arrived here after 3 years, and I was there to hear their opinion on us: meaning our people, our culture, our beautiful sights, just about everything.

Because, a big part of Romanians have moved into all Europe, built a new life there, of course, being noticed by the foreigners most likely from a negative side, I was prepared to hear all kind of awful stories, as you are used to hear on TV. In a surprising way, after having a long talk with them, I realized that a foreigner's opinion can also be positive.

Let's here their happy thoughts on some of us, I would like to think that this is our country's majority:

- the will of being noticed through hard work,  sacrifice, devotion, desire of independence

- their feeling that we, Romanians, are sincere, honest and always on time

- and...last but not least, our big heart and uncommon hospitality

It was nice to hear that in the house of one of these guys, was working a Romanian mother, that had left her home and family to work hard in another country, alone, and far away from home. This guy had all the trust in the world in this woman that was only in charge of his house cleaning and shopping. He talked to me in a beautiful way, that made me see that our work is being valued, not many times in life, but it is enough once, but in such way.

Let's not talk about the fact that he was extremely disappointed that his kids, that grew up in feathers and comfort, will not know what it feels like to have the feeling of succeeding in life by yourself.  Wisdom words from his part: "I would have preferred them to work hard in order to gain their living and see them grow up grateful and happy that they have made it through hard times but great in the end". This was what he had saw here, the will to succeed, even if everything stands in your way.

So...it has no point going on on this theme, he made me saw that there is hope for us, the young generation. Of course, they were excited in getting to know the north of our country, its beautiful and unstained civilisation, the monasteries and the culture.

A gift like a national costume, with "catrinta", "opinci", "ie" and "fote", has moved a man that has it all, in an unimaginable way.

We have all that it takes to succeed, to call the foreigners troops to come visit us, because even if our economy is poor, we are spiritually very rich!

Let me hear your answers, of course, while you are looking for a great car on our website EuroCars.ro!

Tourism in Romania

Posted on July 08, 2010

Tourism in Romania...what can the foreigners you say about our beloved country? If we would pay attention to all the negative sides of our country "promoted" in the media, we would quickly realise that the country isn't, not in a 5% of its value, known by the tourists in its true value.

Yes, if you ask any foreigner where is Romania situated on the map, maybe they might indicate Asia or Africa, but this might be caused, also by the lack of knowledge on Geography, and not entirely by the fact that we are not well promoted out Romania's borders.

From my abroad experience, I can easily affirm that we, Romanians, are known due to several personalities that made history such as: Nadia Comaneci (first gymnast ever to have scored a clean 10 on a global competition), Nicolae Ceausescu (our Communist leader), Gica Hagi (football player) but rarely heard that Romania is known abroad due to its immense beauty of nature.

Fortunately, we can realise that tourism in our country is increasing and this can only be a good thing. Tourism in Romania focuses on the country's natural landscapes, the wilderness of the nature being still visible, and the country's rich history. We hear that the number of tourists is growing every year and that can only make us happy.

Because it's in our best interest to promote the country's real values, here are some unique places that you do not want to miss,  while your are driving a car maybe rented from EuroCars Rent A Car on your trip to Romania:

1. Danube Delta (Romanian: Delta Dunarii) is the second largest river delta in, after the Volga Delta, largest reserve of wet lands in Europe, and the best preserved of all from this continent. In 1990, UNESCO has included the Danube Delta, the newest form of relief from Romania, in the list of World Heritage Sites as biosphere reserve, mainly preserved because it is being kept far away from "the progress of industrialization".

2. The Transfagarasan road or road no. DN7C is the highest and most dramatic paved road in Romania.

Built as a strategic military route, the 90 km of twists and turns run North to South across the tallest sections of the Carpathians Mountains, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu and the second highest, Negoiu.  The road is well known in the region of Transylvania, and connects the cities of Sibiu and Pitesti. In its top, you can eat, there are some good restaurants, we can advice the restaurant situated right next to the lake. Yes, there is also a lake there, it is called Bâlea Lake one of the few glacier lakes in the country, situated at 2,034 m of altitude in the Fagaras Mountains.

So, we have made an introduction on seaside and mountains, let us also present something related to our tradition and religion.

3. The Merry Cemetery is a cemetery in the village of Sapânta, Maramure? county, Romania. Maybe you wonder why it is merry...because it is famous for its colourful tombstones with naive paintings describing, in an original and poetic manner, and sometimes real funny, the persons that are buried and also, in the same funny style, representative scenes from their lives. The Merry Cemetery became an open-air museum and a national tourist attraction. It is worth seeing it!
