You might have heard or not lots of controversial things about Romania and its people, the Romanians.
Some of these facts are unfortunately true (corruption, poor road infrastructure, large dark-skinned and bad smelling minority that has spread all over the Europe stealing and begging) These facts do not make us proud, at all.
You might have heard positives about Romania, sports (Ilie Năstase, Nadia Comăneci or more recently Simona Halep), arts (Nicolae Brâncuși etc…)
