A Brief History of Romania


 


A Brief History

Traces of human life in Romania can be traced as far back as 2,000 years BC (the Lower Palaeolithic Era). This among the oldest finding in the whole of Europe.

In the Ancient years the land was inhabited by Thracian tribes from Greece who established the state of Dacia. The Dacians suffered many conquests made by the Romans eventually becoming under their rule. The area and its people where then subject to a complete Romanization, enforcing the Latin language onto the people. This was the beginning of the formation of the Romanian culture.

Romania has been a rather worn-torn country throughout it's history. Due to its location the country has had to encounter many invasions from its neighbouring nations migrating through the area. Through these battles and invasions many brave heroes arisen defending their lands. Notable is Vlad The Impeller's (The legendary Dracula) rein in Transylvania and Walachia against the Ottoman Turks and the Hungarians, and Stephen the Great in Northern Romania

As the centuries past and the World Wars raved havoc through the land the country had to deal with another ordeal, the communist rule of Nicolae Ceausescu. His dictatorship literally destroyed the country's economy and resources with his absurd giant building projects. Under his rule the people were forced to live a rather low standard of life. Despite this a revolt arised in 1989 in Timisoara soon spreading all over the country. The dictatorship was overthrown and democracy political system was re-established. This victory by the people allowed Romania's economy to return the European market and rejuvenate their cultural status.

Now a days Romania is rapidly integrating with western Europe and becoming a popular spot for travellers. Its entry into the European Union is slated for 2007. Meanwhile, its entry into NATO was confirmed in 2004.

For a more details history the Government of Romania has a rather interesting write up, use this link: domino.kappa.ro/guvern/istoria-e.html
