ROMANIA AND BUCHAREST
Being one of the largest countries in Europe (the size of the United Kingdom or roughly half of France), Romania has a surface of 237,502 sq. km and a population of approx. 22 million inhabitants. Often compared to a "Latin island in a Slav sea", Romania features a unique familiar feeling in Eastern Europe: its language of a Latin origin, the Latin alphabet (quite rare in this part of Europe) and, moreover, the Latin personality and friendliness of its people - all making Romania a place where visitors feel very comfortable. The most outstanding attractions in Romania are: the enchanting monasteries of Bucovina, the Danube Delta, the largest natural reserve in Europe, a paradise for fishermen and birdwatchers, Transylvania - "the Land across the Woods", unspoiled countryside, with traditional rural civilization still alive, the Carpathian Resorts and Natural Parks etc.
Known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards, glorious Belle Époque buildings and a reputation for the high life (which in the 1900s earned its nickname of "Little Paris"), Bucharest, Romania's largest city and capital as well, is today a bustling metropolis. The nation's centre of cultural and economic life, it was founded more than 500 years ago and, despite the massive reconstruction of the 1980s, it remains a Garden City, leafy and pleasant, with cafes open on sidewalks in the summer, and with boats on its lakes and rivers. It also became very popular for its tremendous nightlife and various entertainment options.
We invite educators, researchers, Ph.D. students and all professionals working in both public & private sectors to submit the scientific papers for the Conference.
