But our country is one of the most welcoming countries from Europe, where, for centuries, living together Turkish, Hungarian, German, Hebrew, Lipovani, Bulgarian and, more recently, Chinese, Japanese, American, French, British, Germans, Africans…
Become increasingly cosmopolitan country, plural, because we know how to assimilate all those, who are different and make them feel at home. But those who made the world to be seen were deeply was orthodox christians of this country, because, at present, Romania is not only orthodox, but it and the Roman Catholic and Protestant, and New-Protestant and Muslim or whatever religion.
We are a christian country at the beginning, with all forms of relief, with over 17 million people … and problems of transition from communism to capitalism. For 20 years we live in a new political spectrum, we are members of the European Union, we are part of NATO, but we lack political cohesion and economic need for real progress.
Economic progress is one thing and spiritual and cultural richness of Romania is a different thing. It’s actually our true treasure, that we want to make it known to others. The particular mode in how we live our faith and culture is overshadowed because our language, which is again a unique, for it is little known compared with English or Arabic.
But many Westerners and Asians come and discover Romania very deep and filled with true amazement of their life at home. For a globalized world as ours, what matters come before others. The identity of each enhances the identity of everyone.
