It is surrounded by the Black Sea, Ukraine and Moldova in the east, Ukraine in the north, Hungary and Yugoslavia in the west, and Bulgaria in the south.

The Thracian, a Hindu-European group, is known as the first people who lived on the territory of Romania. These are a branch of the Dogus BC. Between 800 and 300 BC he founded the Dakya State, headquartered in Transylvania under Burebista leadership. Between AD 106-271, the Romans invaded the people by invading the lands.

After the Ottoman Empire was founded in 1299, it soon became a world state. The Ottomans organized European expeditions, primarily to the Balkans, to spread Islam into Europe. Dovin in 1394, Belgrade in 1456, Vaslui in 1475, Schera campaign in 1476, wars of the Ottomans in the first step to Europe. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, two Romanian lands, Wallachia and Rodrigo, were under the Turkish sovereignty.

They acted according to the emrine of the Ottoman Sultan in military and diplomatic terms and gave annual tax. The administrators were appointed by the Ottoman Sultans. In fact, their derebeys wanted to stay in Ottoman rule to protect their ties from the attacks of the Europeans. The people of Wallachia and Voghdan were beside the Ottoman army against the other armies in the region consisting of Austrians, Russians, Tatars, Kazakhs and Polishes.

In 1679, instead of Şerban, the worshiper of Eflak, his nephew, Costantin Brincoveanu, passed. At this time, Dimitri of the Bulgarian Derebeyi. These two dervishes rebelled during the Ottoman-Russian War in 1711, helping Deli Petro. In this, the power of the Greek-speaking groups that migrated from Istanbul to the Balkans is great. They were influenced by the administrative life of Wallachia and Bogdan. On the basis of these rebellions and restlessness of the feudal lords of the Turkish administration for about a century, Wallachia and Bojdan thrones were put into a new system called “voyage”.

In this period, the Ottoman State began to take a pause. Towards the end of the 18th century, Russia increased its hostility towards the Ottoman Empire. With the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca in 1774, Russia gained some rights from the Ottomans, while at the same time gaining the authority to intervene in the affairs of these two venerable sisters. Although the control remained in the Ottomans, many commercial facilities were lost.

A year later Bukovina was left to Austria. In 1812, Besarabia came out of hand. After the Ottoman-Russian War of 1828-1829 until 1834, Wallachia and the Bulgarian entered Russia completely under the hegemony. Count Pavel Kiselev, supported by Russia, tried to remove the Ottoman civilization from the middle.

In 1859 the two provinces were united and in 1861 they were referred to as Romania. In 1877, Romania moved away from Turkish domination with the Berlin Treaty. After independence, it became a kingdom in 1878. In 1881, Carol became the first king of Romania. In 1886, Romania turned to a unicameral constitutional monarchical administrative system. After the First World War, the borders of Romania expanded.

After Basarabia and Bukovina, Banat and Transilvania were also seized. But not too long before, Basarabia and northern Bukovina were forced to leave Russia, which, as always, against the Ottomans they lived in prosperity for many years during the 1877-78 Ottoman-Russian War, helped them. In fact, South Dobruca was also abandoned in Bulgaria as a result of intense threats.

During the Second World War Marshla lon Antonescu attempted to unite with Germany against Russia. In 1944 Antonescu, leader of a military movement, was eliminated by Soviet entrances and King Michael, and Romania was beside Russia. Not long before Romania fell into communism. Although it became a People’s Republic in 1947, nationalization in all areas left it alone.

According to the new Constitution of 1965, Romania was no longer the People’s Republic and became a socialist country. In 1966, the perpetrators of the danger attempted to develop an independence movement against Russia. In 1970 and 1973, Romanian President Nicolai Ceausescu (Ceausescu) visited the United States. In 1976, a 10-year commercial agreement was signed with the United States to try to avoid Russia relatively. In 1982, Romania moved somewhat closer to the west, demanding the western countries to extend the repayment of their debts of around three billion dollars.

The first demonstrations in Romania began in late 1989, when the Communist regime was shaken sharply in the Eastern Bloc States. The bloody repression of the demonstrations led to increased tension throughout the country. After the Ordun was placed beside the rebellious people, Ceausescu, who wanted to escape from the country, was arrested and led to his case after being judged with his wife. The National Liberation Front, which undertook the administration, opened the way to a multi-party system by putting an end to the socialist regime. First free elections were held in April 1990.
