WORST CITY - Bucharest, Romania

Bucharest, Romania

Population: 2 Million

Worst Features: Corruption and Street Crime

Best Feature: Close to Transylvania so there's a chance of seeing those flying bloodsuckers

Like many Eastern European capitals, Bucharest is a show place of corruption, filthy streets and organized crime.

Years of an urbanization program called “systematization” under the communists has lead to the creation of some of the most loathsome buildings in existence.

The streets are dark, dank, and filled with garbage - the domain of the homeless and wretched street children.

Sadly begging is a national pasttime in cities like Bucharest.


Most Romanians feel passionate about their heritage and get very angry with outsiders who hold the belief that they are associated with Gypsies. (In a similar way that Scottish people hate that they are constantly called English.)

Wikipedia gives this account of the Romanians - (though even this is disputed):

The Romanians (also sometimes referred to along with other Balkan Latin peoples as Vlachs) are a people speaking Romanian, a Romance language, and living in Central and Eastern Europe. The Origin of the Romanians has been for a long time disputed and there are two basic theories:

Daco-Romanian continuity in Dacia, Moesia and some adjacent regions.
Migration of Romanic peoples from former Roman provinces south of the Danube in the Balkans (The Rösler Theory).
The exact region where the Romanian language and people formed is not only a scientific puzzle, but also a heated political controversy. 19th-century Hungarian historians largely supported the migration theory, which maintained that Transylvania was not inhabited by Romanians at the time of the Magyar conquests in central Europe during the 10th century. Most Romanian historians support the theory of Daco-Romanian continuity and maintain that Transylvania was continuously inhabited by the ancestors of Romanians. The debate was politically charged in the 19th-20th centuries because of territorial conflicts concerning Transylvania between Romania and Hungary.

More recently, as former axioms of ethnogenesis have shifted, the historian Walter Pohl noted that "centuries after the fall of the Balkan provinces, a pastoral Latin-Roman tradition served as the point of departure for a Valachian-Roman ethnogenesis. This kind of virtuality — ethnicity as hidden potential that comes to the fore under certain historical circumstances — is indicative of our new understanding of ethnic processes. In this light, the passionate discussion for or against Roman-Romanian continuity has been misled by a conception of ethnicity that is far too inflexible." gives this account of Gypsies

From the time of their arrival in Romania Gypsies were the slaves of the landowners, only to be emancipated in 1851. While in Romania some of the Gypsies took to speaking a version of Romanian called Bayesh which can be heard in some of the songs of Gypsy groups recorded in Hungary. Nowadays about 40% of the Gypsies still speak Romany and many can still be seen travelling in lines of carts along the roads of Romania. The majority live in the towns and villages, some fully integrated into villages, some in large ornate houses standing out from the Romanians, but others in small buildings on scraps of lands on the villages edges.

Street children and child labour
Child labour represents a phenomenon on which the public and institutional attention is very little focused, even if the consequences on child's development and health are very serious.
Child labour exploitation does not mean any implication of the child in economical activities, but it appears when the child is at a very young age (under 12 years old) or when the duration of labour exceeds a certain number of hours a week or if it presents certain risks.
According to the estimations of the National Institute of Statistics from 2004, in Romania there are approximately 70.000 children who work. Most of them are from rural areas, forced by their parents to contribute to housekeeping activities (working in the field, with the animals or in their own houses), but there are also children who work in the cities. These are children from Roma families, who beg together with their parents or children from families with difficult economical situations forced, by working, to contribute in supporting their families. The children are from families with numerous members, with difficult socio - economical situation and with low educational level. The family relationships are marked by the worries of surviving and by the mentality that children should help to surpass financial difficulties.
School abandonment, low educational and professional level, social exclusion, physical and psychical abuses that are involved in child labour and economical exploitation, but, also, the big dimension of the phenomenon are only a few factors that prove the necessity of adopting more efficient measures of fighting this.
