Interested in Romania? These are the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts you should follow

If you have ever watched the news you might have noticed that Romania is always presented in a negative way and perhaps you have never ever heard anything good about it. No one could blame you if you did not even think about spending your holiday there, considering the things that are said on TV or online. However, if you are a bit curious about Romania,there are many sources out there that promote it. Some are not official and are made by people that wanted to share its touristic areas, the traditions, the cities, the events, the everyday life.

Some of them can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. The accounts that were selected for this article were accounts that are active and write in English.

Romania’s official tourism twitter account






Compared to Twitter, Facebook has a very large number of accounts that promote Romania. Some of them focus only on some areas, such as Bucharest city, Maramures county, Cluj-Napoca. Some of them focus on vintage photos, traditions, promoting businesses that create Romanian style products such as clothes and coloured furniture. Some of them focus only on one product- such as the traditional Romanian blouse, which is very popular with celebrities and Romanian women.
