Romania is a semi-presidential republic and member of the EU, located in Eastern Europe. It is bordered to the north and north east by Ukraine and Moldavia, to the north west by Hungary, to the south west by Serbia and to the south by Bulgaria; it has around 250 km of south eastern coastline on the Black Sea. It is divided into 41 administrative counties and the municipality of Bucharest.
It covers a total area of 238,391 km², with a varied landscape, of which the most striking element is the Carpathian Mountains which sweep round the centre of Romania from the north west in a curved formation. The River Danube runs further south, a significant water course that follows the Serbian and Bulgarian borders.
The capital, Bucharest, a great hub of industry and commerce, is also located in the south. The population numbers 21,486,371, according to 2012 estimates, and is mainly Romanian, with small Roma, German, Ukrainian and Russian minorities. The official language is Romanian and the local currency is the Romanian Leu.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Romanian economy has begun to recover since the turn of the new millennium.
As well as pig and sheep farming, the most advanced economic sectors are tourism and manufacturing (iron and steel, metallurgic and petrochemicals), the latter fed by the substantial reserves in raw materials (petroleum, natural gas, iron, bauxite, silver, gold, manganese and copper).
