Language

If you speak (or recognise) any Italian, Spanish or French, then Romanian will be immediately familiar to you. As a Romance language, it’s derived from Latin and shares much of its lexicon with these other languages. The alphabet is Latin, which makes things easier!

Politics and currency

Romania has been a full member of the European Union since 2007. Its currency is not the ubiquitous Euro – it uses the Lei. There are just over four Lei to the Euro and US dollar. There is a good network of ATMs.
