Please do so .
You also have a good shot that you find German speaking Romanians (like me), although the numbers were much higher before the 80s.
If you come from Belgrade, Serbia, maybe, it's direct stop by train.

Anyway, nice trip and reportage. And even though Romania has so many negative things (that many of us don't like), I am sure you loved the trip, people were friendly, and you didn't feel unsafe.

Malyan, I am absolutely blown away by your photothread/travel-diary. for one, this thread and another I viewed in these sections, has enticed me to visit Romania. Well done and keep at it.

PS: I tried to look back from the start, but unfortunately the pictures are not appearing up until page 12.

Thank you! You surely won´t regret visiting Romania, it´s really an undiscovered jewel.

Some pictures are temporarily not visible as my photobucket account´s bandwith is exceeded. But as I am using several accounts, most pictures should be visible before page 12, too.

And they also have German names from when they were in the Habsburg Empire:
Brasov = Kronstadt
Sibiu = Hermanstadt
Cluj-Napoca = Klausenburg
Sighişoara = Schäßburg

Ok! Thank you for that information!

So these cities were built in the Austro-Hungarian Empire era?

That last town is so beautiful! Minus the cars and streetsigns this what I imagine 19th century Europe to be.
And I love the foresty hills in the background. So lush and green and deep.
Vampires and werewolfs might hide there!

Well, I don't know the exact answer. You can maybe wiki them. But almost every old beautiful building you see in Transylvania, Banat and Bucovina regions was built by austro-hungarians. I guess the correct term would be, the cities flourished in the Austro-Hungarian Empire era.

I can tell you about Banat, that, after it was liberated from the Turks by Eugen Franz, Prinz von Savoyen-Carignan, Germans Schwabs were brought in the region. They together with Hungarians, Romanians and Serbs formed one of the most multi-ethnic regions in Europe. Almost every town and village in Banat has names in every one of these languages.

I know when a colleague from Germany came here, he told us, they learned in school about the "Banater Schwaben".

And I don't get that a lot of Romanians on here feel embarrassed by the poorer looking parts.
It's not your fault to be born in country suffering through the Ceaușescu times and I just was lucky to be born into a relatively wealthy country. I didn't rebuild Dresden's old town.

The beauty is still visible and we should all hope that in the future all of Europe will be on a similar level.

These pics definitely make me want me to visit Romania.

And like Malyan said, most other European cities also only look incredibly beautiful in certain parts. If you had to make a similar "honest" thread like this about Dresden for example, 80% of those pics would show grey houses, broken houses and commie-blocks.
