; also historically referred to as '''Jassy''' or '''Iassy''') is one of the largest cities (Cities in Romania) and a municipality (Municipality in Romania) in Romania. Located in the historical Moldavia region, Iași has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Romanian social, cultural, academic and artistic life. The city was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia from 1564 to 1859, then of the United Principalities from 1859 to 1862, and the capital of Romania (Kingdom of Romania) from 1916 to 1918. As of 2010-2011 there have been several proposals for the administrative reorganization of Romania made by the presidential commission tasked with the analysis of the current political and constitutional system. http: www.presidency.ro static ordine CPARPCR Raport_CPARPCR.pdf Most of these recommendations aim for the partial reestablishment of the counties in their pre-1950 form (NUTS III level (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics)). If this reform were adopted, the counties would be grouped into several regions (9 to 15) based on common historical and economic characteristics (NUTS II level (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics)). The regions will be in their turn clustered into 4-6 macroregions (NUTS I level (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics)). Furthermore, a NUTS IV (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics) level division, called ''plasă'' or ''canton'', would probably be added in order to meet the EU (European Union) statistical and administrative requirements. http: www.romanialibera.ro dosar a129846-cum-va-arata-harta-romaniei.html In Romania, the traditional ''sângerete'' (Romania) (from

Whelan recalls that while touring Jordan in 1987 "we played a great big theatre in Amman in front of the Crown Prince. We’d been a shambolic indie band, turning our back to the audience. Suddenly we found we had to put on a show." http: www.ft.com cms s 2 1ffb0056-6a59-11dd-83e8

Over 100,000 ethnic Romanians are living throughout far eastern Russia, thousands of Romanians in villages of the Amur River valley on the Chinese (China) Manchurian side of that river, and about 2,000 Romanian immigrants in Japan since the late 20th century.

Romania

'''Romania''' ( and has a temperate (temperate climate)-continental climate. With its 20.1 million inhabitants, it is the seventh most populous (List of European Union member states by population) member of the European Union. Its capital and largest city, Bucharest, is the sixth largest city (Largest cities of the European Union by population within city limits) in the European Union.

Modern Romania emerged within the territories of the ancient Roman (Roman Empire) province of Dacia (Roman Dacia), and was formed in 1859 through a personal union (United Principalities) of the principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia. The new state, officially named ''Romania'' since 1866, gained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1877. At the end of World War I, Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia united with the sovereign Kingdom of Romania. At the end of World War II, territories which today roughly correspond to the Republic of Moldova (Moldova) were occupied by the Soviet Union, and a few years later Romania became a socialist republic and member of the Warsaw Pact. After the 1989 Revolution (Romanian Revolution), Romania began a transition back towards democracy and a capitalist market economy.

Following rapid economic growth in the 2000s, Romania has an economy predominantly based on services, and is a producer and net exporter of machines and electric energy, featuring companies like Automobile Dacia and OMV Petrom (Petrom). Living standards have improved, and currently, Romania is an upper-middle income country with a high Human Development Index. It has been a member of NATO since 2004, and part of the European Union since 2007. Around 90% of the population identify themselves as Eastern Orthodox Christians (Eastern Orthodox Church), and are native speakers of Romanian (Romanian language), a Romance language. With a rich cultural history (culture of Romania), Romania has been the home of influential artists (Art of Romania), musicians (Music of Romania), and inventors (Science and technology in Romania), and features a variety of tourist attractions (tourism in Romania) such as "Dracula's Castle (Bran Castle)".
