Our land is full of color, flowers and traditions. There are small farming communities and exciting places to explore like Dracula’s castle! In Romania, you can explore bat caves by torch light or go for a swim in a volcano crater lake!” STORY EXCERPT “Mom and I helped to clean up, after which we gathered in what was called the music room. The walls were covered with shelves of music books and CDs. Violins hung from the walls, and cozy woolen rugs were spread on the floor. There was a small piano and a couple of benches with embroidered blankets on them. Marku played some folk music on his violin, while he and Sofia took turns singing loud and fun melodies and doing little dance steps in between. It was fascinating to watch.

He declared Romania an independent and sovereign state. Romania went through many changes in the early 1900s and then after the second world war, It’s 23 million citizens lived under the rule of one of the 20th century’s most controlling dictators. His name was Nicolae Ceauşescu. Learning about Romania is very sad because there has been so much suffering there. But then that is true in so many countries. We should always be grateful to those who have gone before us to fight for freedom from oppression. Things in Romania are much better these days than they used to be and Romanians are working hard to recover from Communism, with the help of other countries in Europe.
