About Romania

Romania is located in southeastern Europe, bordering the Black Sea, between Bulgaria to the south and Ukraine to the north. The country forms a complex geographic unit centered on the Transylvanian Basin, around which the peaks of the Carpathian Mountains and their associated sub ranges and structural platforms form a series of crescents.

Beyond this zone, lie the extensive plains of the south and east of the country, their potential for agriculture and wildlife increased by the Danube and its tributaries; they form a fertile outer crescent extending to the national frontiers.

There is great diversity in the topography, geology, climate, hydrology, flora, and fauna, and for millennia this natural environment has borne the imprint of a human population.

Since the late 19th century, in particular, Romania has undergone an economic and social transformation from an agricultural society to an urbanized, industrial society.
