One of the warmest winters on record in Switzerland, doesn't seem to be the case in Romania...

Roughly yes.
But at least in summer, it's much more hotter and dryer in Romania (at least in the west where I'm from), and also in Hungary and Austria until Vienna.

Well, I was in Central Romania last summer and a local told we that general rule. I am using contact lenses and I had some problems because of the very dry air. The temperature was a little bit higher than in Germany but due to the dry air it seemed warmer.

No. Weather formation factors can be ordered like this: ocean>>>northeastern plains>Black sea.

I think Black sea is more responsible for creating moderate climate in Caucasian region.

They used to have the red-yellow-green-yellow-red sequence, but now there is just red-yellow-green-yellow-red. Maybe there are some more traffic lights with the old style, but at least in my city all of them don't show the yellow between red and green anymore.

There are pros and cons for that kind of phasing. If you introduce yellow between red and green, it will allow people to react quicker to the green light. However it also makes people put the handbrake on, or shift it into neutral, so any time savings are lost. Additionally, in many cases the green phase simply becomes shorter.

It would be interesting to make a list of countries which use the yellow before green and countries which use straight red to green phasing.

Is the red-green change common in Romania? I didn't noticed it last summer in Central Romania. But I like that because I am always starting when the red light turns off...

In France I remember it was the same. Wouldn't surprise me since almost everything in Romania is inspired from there.

in austria it means, prepare for yellow (and red). same in slovakia. of course people react differently on it: some accelerate, some brake. however, i like it the most when turning right, in hungary f.e. the right-arrow just disappears suddenly, forcing cars the pass on red.

Oh wow, that would have come for a big surprise to me, I would have expected that all other lights were red so I could turn left without yielding

well the blinking lasts no longer then about 3 seconds. so basically you have no time to do anything wrong.

I didn't knew that there is blinking green in Romania, but I just found a video few minutes ago where you can see blinking green at a traffic light in Cluj-Napoca, Romania: (the video is about something else, but you can see the blinking green at the beginning).
