He began his acting career probably in 1901 or 1902. His earliest known performances are from provincial theaters in the 1903–1904 season, playing small roles in several plays and operettas. Arthur Lennig, ''The Immortal Count'', University Press of Kentucky, 2003, p. 21. ISBN 978-0813122731. He went on to Shakespeare (William Shakespeare) plays and other major roles. Moving to Budapest in 1911, he played dozens of roles with the National Theater of Hungary in the period 1913–1919. Although Lugosi would later claim that he "became the leading actor of Hungary's Royal National Theater", almost all his roles there were small or supporting parts. Arthur Lennig, ''The Immortal Count'', University Press of Kentucky, 2003, pp. 25–26, 28–29. ISBN 978-0813122731. Geography strongly defines Central Europe's borders with its neighbouring regions to the North and South, namely Northern Europe (or Scandinavia) across the Baltic Sea, the Apennine peninsula (or Italy) across the Alps and the Balkan peninsula across the Soča-Krka-Sava-Danube line. The borders to Western Europe and Eastern Europe are geographically less defined and for this reason the cultural and historical boundaries migrate more easily West-East than South-North. The Rhine river which runs South-North through Western Germany is an exception. thumb right Carpathian mountains Carpathian (Image:Mapcarpat2.png) countries (north to south): AT (Austria), CZ (Czech Republic), PL (Poland), SK (Slovakia), HU (Hungary), UA (Ukraine), RO (Romania), SRB (Serbia) Geographically speaking, the Carpathian mountains divide the European Plain into two sections: the Central Europe's Pannonian Plain in the west,


to a big corporation. Hitchhiking is typically not dangerous (the highly aggressive, fast and disorderly driving style of Romanians may be more of a danger), but take usual precautions when using this conveyance. Inside city limits, it is not advisable to hitchhike using the traditional thumb-up hand signal, as many drivers may believe you are flagging a taxi or a route-taxi (mini-bus), and not stop. Use a destination paper instead. It is customary to leave some money for the ride (so called 'gas money', about 1-2 lei 10km), but if you are a foreigner you will not be expected to leave money and nobody will get upset. Note that most truck drivers and company car drivers will refuse payment altogether. Furthermore, if you tell the driver where you want to get in a city, he or she will make a detour just to drop you off where it best suits you. Say "Mulţumesc"( Mooltsoomesck ) (thank you) at the end. Note that most Romanians are very talkative, and even if their English French German whatever is extremely rusty, many will more likely than not tell you their entire life story, discuss the entire football season and or talk politics (usually starting from discussing the poor state of roads even while on a freshly repaired road). In the end, however, hitchhiking is a mostly enjoyable experience, and, if lucky, you may even get yourself invited for lunch or dinner, offered a room for a night, or just meet some very interesting people along the way.

'''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)".
