Regions

Romania consists of five historical regions, each of which is represented in the country's coat of arms, shown at right.  These five regions are the three Romanian principalities:

  • Moldavia (upper right)
  • Transylvania (lower right), and
  • Wallachia (upper left), as well as two other regions;

Dobrogea (lower center), and The Banat (lower left).[1]

The area of Bukovina is included in Moldavia, and those of Crisana and Maramures are included in Transylvania.

The principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia in Southeastern Europe, bordering the Black Sea, between Bulgaria and Ukraine were for centuries under the suzerainty of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. They secured their autonomy in 1856 and united in 1859 and a few years later adopted the new name of Romania. The Kingdom of Romania gained official recognition as an independent country at the Congress of Berlin in 1878.

Dobrogea was incorporated into Romania in 1878.  Transylvania and the Banat entered Romania in 1918, following World War I.
