Romanians marks today 94 years since the creation of ‘Greater Romania’
On December 1, Romanians celebrate the unification of Transylvania into ‘Greater Romania’ in 1918. In the wake of the break-up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire after WW I, on December 1, 1918, citizens of Transylvania, Banat County, Crisana County and Maramures County met in the city of Alba-Iulia and voted to join Romania. This was ratified in the Romanian Chamber of Deputies and Senate 29 days later. This act was internationally formalized by the signing of the Treaty of Trianon on June 4, 1920, between Romania and Hungary. This brought the three provinces of Wallachia, Moldavia, and Transylvania into the united kingdom of Romania.

Romania is celebrating ninety four years of unity – the Great Union Day (December 1), which is also the country’s National Day. Various cultural events are organized all over the country to mark the special day, as well as military parades, thematic concerts and parties.
