These Romanians are crazy

Romania. Lovely and yet pretty crazy.

Today is the day of the Romanian national anthem. Well, why not? Deșteaptă-te, române! is the anthem of Romania (and it also was the national anthem of Moldova between 1991 and 1994). The song is a revolutionary anthem and has been sung during a lot of Romanian conflicts. It is truly the anthem of the people.
