Rumania 2015 2

An island of latin blood in a sea of slave peoples.

Little Paris. Bucharest.
Dracula? Transylvania.
22 million inhabitants.
24 Servas members. Well, things have undergone some changes lately, and we are happy to
announce that Servas Romania has added 12 more hosts in the past year. We would like to
celebrate with you and share with you one of the most beautiful areas in the country-right in its
We’re a very dynamic organization, we’re very eager to hear your stories and we invite you to share
them with us.
More than half our members are young families who wish to experience the International Servas
spirit. We have lots of friends who ‘d like to join Servas and then share their experiences . We would
like the Servas spirit and values to be embraced by as many people as possible.
Romania is a beautiful country with lots of traditions, a rich and varied culture and we would like
you to have a “taste” of all these things and then we are convinced you will return. Accidentally it is
also an area very rich in myths, so any myth buster can try his hand here.
We hereby invite you to our Servas meeting-party.


The number of available places is “relatively” limited, so we kindly ask you to send your application
request by May 1st, 2015, to be able to handle all logistical issues.


We have two different options for lodging, camping in nature, in a splendid landscape, or in a
double or triple pension room.
he schedule has two main goals: on one hand, we will have a “Servas Values” section, where we
invite everyone to make presentations and on the other hand we will have the “Romania in the
world “ section, where we, the people at Servas Romania will try to delight you with our cultural
and culinary specialties which made so many travellers return to these places.
