I usally check: roadsite, Slovakia, Czech republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Netherlands

and rarely: UK, Germany, Austria, ex-Yugoslavia, Ukraine, Romania..

non-national: both license plates threads, roundabouts, weird and wonderful road signs, border crossings, funny accidents

@ gramercy: don't worry, those pics could have been easily made in Romania. Romania of today, EU, 2011.
In fact, I first thought they were made in Romania, then I saw the .hu domain.

^ It's exactly the same in Romania, DIGI dishes on every so-called "house". I always wondered how people so poor can afford to monthly pay for satellite TV.

So is it something what you can see if you travel across Romania?

I heard a lot of Romania I just want to know how does it really look like. I have never been there.

EDIT: Or..

Can you send a picture of average Romanian village?

I have uploaded on Panoramio few pictures of the two villages where my parents lived as kids: (Ieud, Maramureș county and Revetiș, Arad county). Just browse my uploaded pics and you will find them.

Well, sometimes. But you won't see such villages when you travel on main roads. Romania doesn't usually looks like that. But almost every main region of the country have from place to place its isolated small villages inhabited by poor Rroma, looking as in your picture.

Well, I don't think an average type of Romanian village really exists. The villages are different from one main region of the country to another.
But you can try these threads:

I sometimes check nordic baltic forums also the german and russian forums.
No its only common in Slavic countries to eat roadkills. If we want meat we will go buy it in the store or to the butchers. Why do you allways bring up Albania do you have some sort of fetish or are you that dumb and filled with hate you will do anything to link Albania with anything negative out there?? If so you need help.

People from Romania or Hungary can show the not very pleasant sides of their countries and discuss that, that is people living of roadkills and gypsies selling stolen pigs. But Albanians have a way of denying every non favorable side of their country.

Albania: average income for a worker 150€/month
Majority of people with low income pay no taxes.
Due to weak authority, corruption (close to failed state) Albania is a major hub for organized crime, human trafficing, trade of weapons, narcotics and stolen cars.

Also in western countries albanian immigrants cause problems preserving their distinct clan-mentality, blood feuds/vendettas are deeply associated within their culture. In the USA the albanian mafia is now taking controll of the prosperous black market, which before was governed by the italian camorra.

Due to bad harvest, In the late 19th century 1.5 million swedes immigrated to the USA, did any of them found a mafiasyndicate engaging in organized crime ?? the answer is no, they were all decent hard working people.


Albanian immigrants, I don't want to meet these albanian boys in town a late evening.

I personally know someone who accidentally killed a quite large rabbit while returning home from Hungary and he put it in the cars trunk after that. The border patrol officers didn't notice it so he had a rabbit stew for dinner

No albanian youth in Belgium yet, but they do run a big part of the sex industrie...

Buth Uhm you really don't have to look in eastern Europe to find such poverty. Gipsy villages around Paris and other big French cities are common. Last year an illigal Gipsy setlement was buldozed in here in Belgium

Shouldnt you be busy drinking parfume because your to poor to buy descent alcohol?? Like all you fellow ruskis?? I am done replying to you in a mature manner because as soon as i come with (facts) you dont reply anymore. If your (country) was so good you wouldnt of ran to Sweden to live and work there, yet you talk about others. Now what does that say about you?? You take pride into living and working in Sweden when you arent even from there shows how much you actual country must suck.


Even in 2003 that number was higher. So i dont know where you get all this kind of information from, but it wouldnt hurt you to post a link from time to time now would it??

How do i know the picture provided by you that there are actual Albanians in it?? Because they wear (red) (even Bloods(gang) in USA wears red but that doesnt make them Albanians now does it? Or doesnt your tiny brain allow you to understand that?

So do the Russians,Italians,Slavs etc...

So thats an good thing. I cant believe how things were in Holland with the all the morrocans and turkish street thugs there and the government doesnt take any steps whatsoever to put them in jail or even send them back to their own country. I am actually very pro that be it Albanians or whatever nationality if they cant behave in the country they are living in the government should just send them back.

According to data from 2009 it was 243 € a month.

Btw, I also sometimes think that whatever "wrong" is said about Albania makes flame and lots of angry posts from Albanians.

It has nothing to do with whatever "wrong" is said about Albania at all. It has to do with his flame-posts and his anti Albanian behavior. He did the same thing in 4-5 threads allready.

This was about Hungary yet he posts something about Albania and then continues with the off-topic about 10-12 kids on a picture. Seriously like i care even if its true the goverment of that country they are in should deal with that. It has nothing to do with Albania or this topic now does it?? If i am wrong you can tell me dont be shy now.
