Basics about Romania
Centered around the 45th parallel of the northern hemisphere and described either as a country of the Balkans, or as a southeastern European country, Romania offers a lot of geographical contrasts. The Carpathian Mountains, covered with dense forests, enclose the Transylvanian Plateau in a wide arc, a distinctive feature, evident at first glance on any map of Romania. On the outside of this arc, the Moldavian Plateau stretches to the East and the Wallachian Plain to the South.
The continuity of human settlements in the territory of Romania goes back as far as the Paleolithic period. The diversity of its geographical conditions, its rich fauna and flora played a favorable role in assuring this continuity. Before the period of Roma domination, various tribes populated present day Romania. The most important and famous ones were the Scythians and the Sarmatians, living in the south-east area, and the Geto-Dacians occupying the northern banks of the Danube.
