There are many symbols of romanian culture the presentation below just intends to offer a short glimpse of them. Traditional folk costume.
The structure of Romanian traditional clothing has remained unchanged throughout history and can be traced back to the earliest times. The basic garment for both men and women is a shirt or chemise, which is made from hemp, linen or woollen fabric. This was tied round the waist using a fabric belt, narrow for women and wider for men. In the past those worn by women usually reached to the ankles while men's shirts were shorter and worn over trousers or leggings made from strips of fabric. Women always wear an apron over the chemise. This was initially a single piece of cloth wrapped round the lower part of their bodies and secured by a belt at the waist, as is still seen in the east and south east of Romania. In Transylvania and the south west of Romania this became two separate aprons, one worn at the back and one at the front.

Commonly known as "Dracula's Castle,it is marketed as the home of the titular character in Bram Stoker's Dracula.
However, this castle has only tangential associations with Vlad III, voivode of Wallachia, the inspiration for Dracula.
They say that during the Pesach (the Hebrew Passover) Virgin Mary came to see her crucified son. She carried a basket with eggs, which she laid at the foot of the cross while praying for Christ. His holy blood dropped on the eggs and reddened them, so the Lord said: ‘From now on you shall paint the eggs in red to remember my crucifixion’.
In Romania the tradition of decorating eggs is ancestral.
Horezu is one of those many Romanian heavenly locations, where people are genuine and traditions are still preserved. The Horezu pottery has its roots in the dawns of the time.
The pottery is shaped using the traditional kick-wheel. Usually men form the objects and women give the finishing touch, decorating them. The clay pottery is first decorated with simple symbols and motifs, from which the most popular being the Horezu Rooster – Cocosul de Hurez.
