As Diana Doroftei (below), author of The Little Book of Romanian Wisdom tells us, most people associate Romania with Dracula and perfect 10 gymnastic routines. But as the above video shows, there is so much more to this country that birthed the inventor of the fountain pen, insulin, and the modern jet engine. There’s the natural beauty of the county which is prized by many, including the Prince of Wales.
