Back from the dead - Race to save Romania s 65 million-year-old fish11 Nov 2020

On a tiny stretch of the fast-flowing Valsan river in Romania lives one of the rarest fish in Europe, and quite possibly the world. The 65-million-year-old Asprete was first discovered by a biology student in 1956, and for decades it has teetered on the brink of extinction. "After many years trying to save [it], people were telling us that the species was extinct," Nicolae Craciun, a 59-year-old biologist, told the BBC. "But we were sure they still existed." The Asprete, a small nocturnal fish...

The country where 96% of homes are privately owned21 Nov 2018

As the article demonstrates, Romanian`s are clearly owner`s and not renter`s.

The single biggest issue for our business is first finding (because the overwhelming majority of properties we come in contact with are just not up to the standards our clients require) and then convincing...

36 Hours in Bucharest17 Nov 2018

Rebounding from decades of repression, Romania’s capital is brimming with Italian-style cafes, museums, parks and restaurants that celebrate the country’s rich cuisine. Bucharest is like cilantro, a Romanian resident once told me: You either love it or hate it.
