Romania is a country in the Eastern part of Europe and its capital is Bucharest. Romania spans a total surface of 237,500 square kilometers (roughly 91,800 sq.miles). Picture it to be about the size of Oregon. The official language is Romanian, a language of Latin origin having much in common with the Italian and Spanish. It uses a Latin alphabet. Romanian currency is called "LEU".


Each year, on the first day of March, people wish each other health and happiness and exchange a little charm or decoration tied up with red and white woolen threads; these, they can wear on their cloths, or on their wrist.
