Romanians celebrates 94 years since the creation of “Greater Romania”

On December 1, Romanians celebrate the unification of Transylvania into the “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. Authorities in Brasov, Sibiu, Arad, Cluj, Constanta and Timisoara will hold National Day ceremonies, fanfare concerts or performances by popular singers and bands, as well as fireworks or “popular meals” consisting of beans and pork barrel. The Capital will host the  traditional military parade, which will be opened by a 9-year-old girl,  Anne Marie Bontea, who made her horse-riding debut at the Arezzo, Italy, equestrian event, and won no fewer than ten diplomas at national and international contests within a mere six months. The Bucharest parade is accompanied by traffic restrictions, as follows: 9.00 am – 2:00 pm, traffic is closed on Kiseleff Main Road, between Press Square and Victoria Square, on Alexandru Constantinescu St., between Arcul de Triumf Square and Marasti Blvd, on Maresal  Alexandru Averescu, between Arcul de Triumf Square and the Charles de Gaulle Square.
