Romania. For most of the world, the name usually conjures up images of Dracula, Olympic gymnastics legend Nadia Comaneci-and t much else. Yet this country with a rich history stretching back thousands of years contains countless wonders and hidden gems, producing many people who've made a major impact on our world. Their Wisdom has remained hidden behind the barrier of a language spoken by less than 25 million people worldwide.

Robinson, Bela Lugosi (the original Dracula), and Johnny Weissmuller (the original Tarzan) - Elie Weisel, Nobel Prize-winning author - Olympic gold medal gymnast Nadia Comaneci - Rewned sculptor Constantin Brancusi - The lesser-kwn outside Romania, such as poet Mihai Eminescu (whose fame it's said would have rivaled Shakespeare, had Eminescu written in English). This Book will give you a meaningful glimpse into the heart and soul of Romania and its people-both the world-famous and everyday citizens.
