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.
