Romanian Survival Book


In the last few years I have met many foreigners living in Romania. I also have lots of foreign friends everywhere. Every now and then, but on regular basis, I hear how Romania or Romanians are and I am being asked about that. Here is the beginning of a cultural guide to getting to know Romania and Romanians with good and bad, so feel free to have have your say. Many other countries are doing this unconventional research, so, why not us too?!



  1. Heh, as an American living in Romania, I have to say this is pretty excellent.

  4. Going to come to Romania for a bit to write a journalism project. I was wondering if anyone knows of a decent ISP? I don’t care if its Cable or DSL I just need a good constant connection, moderately cheap if possible, and reliable enough for video (might do a video blog instead).

    A foreign exchange contact I met in school decided to let me stay with him as long as I front some of his costs.

    I will be staying in Titan, Aleea Soldat Tudor Ion.

    Any assistance would be great.

  9. Hello
    My name is Kate Frenson and I recently found your blog Romania. I noticed your website some time ago and I wanted to give you some feedback. You give a lot of information about history, geography and culture, and a chance to learn something more about Romania. Your website is really interesting and show the modern face of your country. I think that your website could be more popular with adding more basic and simple information. I thought that you could be interested in adding more info about culture of Romania. It could attract more people to come and see Romania in flesh and also make your website more popular in Google search results. Maybe you could be interested in adding a link to ?. Please let me know what do you think about that.
    Thank you,
    Kate Frenson

  11. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult
    to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a excellent job with this.

    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
    Excellent Blog!
