Dragobete in Romania: Where Romance and Magic Intertwine


Nearly every country has a holiday dedicated to dragoste (love) and romance. In the U.S. and other Western nations, this manifests as Valentine’s Day; in South Korea, there are twelve separate love days celebrated each year! And in Romania, there is the traditional celebration of Dragobete Day (often called Romanian Valentine’s Day).

This is a unique holiday centered on romance and the beginning of primăvară (spring). In this article, you’ll learn how this holiday got started, what celebrations look like today, and more useful Dragobete information.

1. What is Dragobete?

Two Heart-Shaped Balloons Floating in the Sky

In Romania, February 24 marks the unofficial beginning of spring as well as the annual love celebration called Dragobete. This traditional holiday lost its popularity during the communist era, but has more recently resurfaced to be celebrated alongside Valentine’s Day. Perhaps due to the holiday’s time missing in action, no two regions within Romania celebrate it exactly the same way. 

While some people do celebrate Valentine’s Day in Romania, many favor Dragobete for its connection to tradition and its fresh perspective on love and romance. 

According to the Dragobete legend, there’s an old woman named Baba Dochia. She gave birth to Dragobete, who is most often depicted as being half-human and half-angel. Romanians view him as being not only the protector of love, but also a guardian of sorts to birds. These beliefs are reflected in every aspect of the holiday, from its focus on romance to its many springtime activities.

Around this time, many birds begin to build their cuib (nest) in preparation for breeding and laying eggs in the coming spring. Some people consider this symbolic of how men and women should also be ‘nesting’ and preparing to start a family. As such, this holiday is regarded as the perfect time to express romantic interest in a potential partner—especially if you were too shy to do so throughout the last year! 

    → Though few things are sweeter than a springtime romance, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the season even if you’re single. Check out our list of the Top 15 Things To Do Over Spring Break. 😉

2. Dragobete Traditions and Customs

A Man Kissing His Girlfriend on the Forehead

Throughout Romania, Dragobete is associated with a number of traditions, some of which vary by region. 

The most common tradition is for single men and women to go into the fields together and gather springtime flowers. Afterwards, the men and women may spend time together as a group, lighting fires atop the hills and talking with each other until late in the evening. After this, each man chases one of the women back to the village; if the woman has feelings for him, she will allow the man to kiss her. Depending on the region, the people of the village consider this a type of logodnă (engagement), where the man and woman publicly express their love for each other prior to marriage. 

Another Romanian Dragobete tradition is for women to use the springtime snow to wash their faces; this is thought to make them more beautiful and their skin purer. Young women also eat salty bread baked by elderly women, which is thought to make them thirsty before bed. They then place some busuioc (basil) underneath their pillow; they will then have a vis (dream) about their future soţ (husband), who brings them water to drink. 

Due to the nature of this holiday, people are also advised to treat each other well and to have a sunny disposition. For partners, this might mean buying gifts for each other or spending quality time together. For those who are single, this means not complaining or being difficult. 

3. Fascinating Correlations

Spring Flowers

Earlier, we mentioned that the Dragobete holiday is partially based on mythology surrounding Baba Dochia and her son Dragobete. Did you know that Bulgaria has a similar mythological character, named Baba Marta

Like Baba Dochia, Baba Marta is associated with the coming of spring. Bulgarians celebrate their springtime festival throughout the month of March. Rather than focusing on romance, however, the Bulgarian holiday is celebrated by wearing red-and-white bracelets to keep evil away—and to keep the often-grouchy Baba Marta in a good mood! 

4. Romanian Vocabulary to Know for Dragobete

A Bird’s Nest with Eggs in It

Here’s the essential vocabulary you’ll need for Dragobete in Romania (or really, any time you want to impress your Romanian partner). 

  • Pernă (Pillow) – noun, feminine

1. What is International Women’s Day?

In Romania, International Women’s Day is a day set aside to honor and respect women. In addition, this holiday is meant to encourage more rights and equality for women, and to a sărbători, or “celebrate,” the gains women have already experienced.

International Women’s Day history in Romania began in 1945, though this holiday reached Europe in 1911, and the United States even earlier in 1909. At some point, the Romanian Women’s Day was overtaken by the Socialist Republic of Romania under the rule of Nicolae Ceausescu, and Mother’s Day took its place. But the sacrifices of many women (and men) have given women the right and ability to once again celebrate Women’s Day!

2. When is International Women’s Day?

International Women’s Day is on March 8

Each year, International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8.

3. Women’s Day Traditions & Celebrations

For a popular International Women’s Day celebration, Romanians give lavish gifts to the important women in their lives. For example, husbands will give their wife (soție) sweets or flowers, and children will give their mother (mamă) cards. In fact, stores and shops all over Romania have massive sales just for Women’s Day.

Women can expect to receive a multitude of gifts and compliments from their family or significant other. Sometimes, a boyfriend or husband may also take their significant other out for dinner or another fun activity.

The most important thing is for women to enjoy themselves on this day!

4. Petrecere (Party)

A fascinating aspect of Women’s Day in Romania is the fact that many women actually enjoy spending the day alone or with their fellow ladies.

During the daytime, many women bide their time shopping or getting pampered at a salon.
Once evening hits, women are typically encouraged to dress nicely, and go out to enjoy themselves for a special kind of all-ladies petrecere, or “party.” Bars and restaurants often have great discounts or special Women’s Day events going on, and women enjoy spending time with their girls!

1. What is Brancusi Day?

On this holiday, Romanians observe and celebrate the birth and life of Constantin Brancusi, Romanian sculptor, photographer, and artist.

Born in 1876, Constantin Brancusi developed a strong talent for carving at an early age. Though he worked as a sheepherder for his family, he also spent time carving farm tools and other items from wood. Unfortunately, his father and brothers bullied and abused him, and young Brancusi often left home for safety.

Brancusi permanently left home at around age nine to begin working. Eventually, he found a new place of residence in Craiova, where he lived until age eighteen; at that time, someone discovered his artwork and sent him to the Craiova School of Arts and Crafts, where Brancusi honed his skills.

Brancusi eventually made a life and career for himself in Paris, France. Beginning with his pieces The Prayer, Sleeping Muse, and The Kiss, he went on to create many sculptures and other forms of artwork. Brancusi was especially well-known for his use of clean lines and symbolism, and is now considered a major influence of modernism. Two of his most famous pieces are Bird in Space and Endless Column.

2. Date of Brancusi Day

A Spiraling Clock Representing Infinity

Each year, Romanians observe Brancusi Day on February 19, the date of his birth in 1876.

To celebrate Brancusi Day, people may observe Constantin Brancusi sculptures and other forms of his artwork in museums, and simply contemplate on Brancusi’s life. Sometimes, speeches and lectures about Brancusi and his work are given in art museums as well.

4. Constantin Brancusi Quotes

1. “Nothing can grow under big trees.”
2. “Work like a slave; command like a king; create like a god.”

1. What is Bukovina Day in Romania?

Bukovina is an important city within the country, and is divided into Northern and Southern Bukovina, both of which have strong historical significance rooted in World War II.

Bukovina Day marks the date in 1918 that the region of Bukovina voted to be joined with Romania. Prior to this, Bukovina was a part of Moldavia, and for 144 years leading up to its vote, suffered many abuses and severe freedom limitations. Seeing Romania as an escape and liberation from these wrongs, Bukovina (headed by Iancu Flondor) made the decision to be joined “unconditionally and forever,” to Romania.

However, the June 1940 Soviet Ultimatum created another obstacle. The Soviet Union demanded that Romania hand over Northern Bukovina to it, in order to compensate for the Soviet Union’s heavy losses during Romania’s control of Bessarabia. In the Paris Peace Treaty of 1947, Romania was made to give up the Northern Bukovina to the USSR.

Today, over half of what was Northern Bukovina is now the Chernivtsi Oblast in Ukraine. Southern Bukovina is still very much part of Romania.

2. When is Bukovina Day?

A Mountain

Each year, Bukovina Day is observed on November 28, the date in 1918 that Bukovina’s people voted to be united with Romania.

3. Bukovina Day Celebrations & Observations

Tourists Exploring City

1- Great Union Day

There are no extravagant celebrations to commemorate Bukovina Day on November 28.

Rather, Romanians celebrate a more well-known and inclusive holiday called Great Union Day each year on December 1. On this day, which is also a national holiday, Romanians celebrate the overall expansion of its territory following the First World War.

Not only did Bukovina become (officially) a part of Romania on this date, but so did Transylvania and Bessarabia. Having added these three territories, all of which had populations consisting mostly of Romanians, Romania became two times larger!

2- Celebrations

Celebrations and traditions for Great Unity Day vary from region to region, with the largest and most popular celebrations being in Bucharest and Alba Iulia (where the document confirming the union of Transylvania to Romania was read to many people).

Common traditions that thread through Romania include military parades and performances, religious ceremonies, aircraft shows, free museum admissions, music concerts, and fireworks. Television networks capture footage of numerous events, particularly the parades.

4. Bessarabia & Transylvania

Bessarabia’s reunion to Romania following WWI was brief, and today most of what was Bessarabia belongs to Moldova.

Transylvania was the most significant gain to Romania during the Union, and is today considered a historical region within the country.

July 29: National Anthem Day in Romania


A country’s national anthem is more than lyrics and spirited music. From an anthem’s conception, it becomes a part of history and culture, set to the beat of its people’s hearts in unity. An anthem accompanies a country through its changes, its wars, its times of peace, its victories, and its defeats. It reflects the philosophy and mindset of its writers and composers, and rings true in the ears of the entire country.

Romania’s National Anthem is no different, and each year the Romanian people commemorate this anthem and the events surrounding it on its National Anthem Day.

1. What is National Anthem Day in Romania?

National Anthem Day, though not a public holiday, is a holiday for Romanians to sing, listen to, and fully appreciate the Romanian National Anthem. This anthem, titled Deșteaptă-te, române! (or “Awaken Thee, Romanian!” in English), is near Romanians’ hearts as it has been from its first performance in 1848—the year of the trying 1848 Revolution.

The Romania National Anthem has helped Romanians remain strong and united through many a trial since, including the Russo-Turkish War, World War I, World War II (as Romania decided to turn against Germany and its Nazism), and the Romanian Revolution (1989).

Once you hear the Romanian National Anthem lyrics, it won’t be hard to understand why Romanians cling to it in times of trouble or change. Unity, confidence, and patriotism resound in its words, and that’s what any country needs to remain strong. Hence the presence of National Anthem Day in Romania.

2. When is National Anthem Day?

Musical Notes

Each year, Romanians observe their National Anthem Day on July 29.

3. How is the National Anthem Celebrated?

Ceremony in the Street

On National Anthem Day, people still have to work and go to school, seeing as it’s not a public holiday. However, a public ceremony is still held in a popular, historical place in Romania each year—typically the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

During this ceremony, the Romanian President is present, along with many other political and government leaders, as well as those who serve or have served in the Romanian military. There’s a twenty-one-gun salute, followed by speeches from the leaders in attendance. These speeches cover topics such as the country’s history, people worthy of mention, and what to expect for Romania’s future.

Romanians raise their flag high, and as expected, they sing the national anthem in its entirety.

4. The Author

So, who wrote the Romanian National Anthem?

Andrei Mureșanu wrote the lyrics of Romania’s National Anthem in 1848, based on an old religious tune.

Mureșanu grew up under the influence of his small business-owning family, and after studying philosophy and religion, he became a professor Brașov to publish his first sample of poetry not long after.

To give context to his work writing the Romanian National Anthem, Mureșanu also worked as an activist around the time of the 1848 Revolution.

How to Celebrate Romanian Unification Day on January 24

Romanian Unification Day

Romanian Unification Day was first celebrated in 2015, and commemorates one of the most significant events in Romania’s history: when it officially became Romania in 1866. Learn more about the Unification of Romania and how this holiday is celebrated with!

We’ll go over its history, some vocabulary, and why Unification Day in Romania is so significant!

1. Why Should You Know About Romanian Unification Day?

Log in to Download Your Free Cheat Sheet - How to Improve Your Language Skills!

Despite only recently becoming a celebrated holiday, Romanian Unification Day may just be the most important and significant Romanian holiday. This is because if the event it commemorates never took place, there would be no Romania as we know it today. Romanian Unification Day observes the day that Romania became Romania.

That said, in order to fully appreciate Romania and its language, it’s vital that you know as much about this day as possible, as well as the history surrounding it.

2. What is Romanian Unification Day?

Romanian Flag

On January 24, Unification Day in Romania is celebrated. There’s a lot of background to cover here, but essentially this commemorates the 1862 unification of Moldavia and Wallachia, which later became Romania.

Here’s a quick rundown of this holiday’s history.

1- Moldavia and Wallachia Before Unification

The two principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia were once called the Danubian Principalities, during the 14th century. In a sense, these two principalities were grouped together—following the 1774 Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca—because this made it easier to identify them as having a similar geopolitical stance.

2- Events Leading up to their Unification

While several events occured before the unification of Moldavia and Wallachia (and Transylvania), here are a few of the most significant:

  • Power struggles and battles involving the Russians and Habsburgs
  • Involvement in the Greek Independence War in the 1800s
  • Russo-Turkish War (1828-29)
  • Crimean War (1853-56)
  • Treaty of Paris (1856)
    • Formation of “The Great Powers”
    • Ad hoc Divans allows Alexander Ioan Cuza to rule United Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia

3- The Unification in 1862

In 1862, the United Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia was shortened to the Romanian United Principalities, thus paving the way for the creation of the Romanian Kingdom four years later, in 1866.

3. When is Unification Day in Romania?

This Holiday Takes Place in January

Each year, Romania celebrates its Unification Day on January 24.

This new holiday was first celebrated in 2015, though it commemorates the day in 1862 when the United Principalities were formed from Moldavia and Wallachia. Four years later, this came to be called Romania, thus making this one of the most important events to happen in Romania’s history.

4. How is Romania Unification Day Celebrated?

Man Relaxing on Sofa

Romanian Unification Day only became a largely celebrated holiday in 2015, and so there aren’t really set traditions for celebrations. However, this is a Sărbătoare națională or “public holiday,” meaning that the majority of Romanians take this day off of work and school.

On Unification Day, Romanians often celebrate with the following:

And celebrations of this day aren’t limited to Romania—there are some other places around the world which find reason to celebrate this day, including Vancouver, Canada!

5. Additional Information

1- Romania’s Great Union Day

A quick note on this holiday:

Be sure not to confuse Romanian Unification Day with Romania’s Great Union Day.

The latter takes place on December 1 each year, and is Romania’s national holiday. It celebrates the day in 1918 when Transylvania, Bessarabia, and Bukovina officially united with The Romanian Kingdom.

While there isn’t too much information on Romanian Unification Day or its celebrations as of yet—considering its newer status as an official holiday—you can hopefully see why it really does deserve its own day. This is not a holiday to be undermined considering its significance and the weight it bears in Romania’s history.

6. Must-know Vocab for Unification Day in Romania

A Scroll and Ink Quill

In order to celebrate Romanian Unification Day to its fullest, there’s some basic vocabulary you should know. Check out our list below:

  • Bancă — Bank
  • Discuţie — Discussion
  • Companie — Company
  • Ianuarie — January
  • Istorie — History
  • Constituție — Constitution
  • Sărbătoare națională — Public holiday
  • Închis — Closed
  • Unit — United
  • Oficial — Official
  • Succes — Success
  • A crea — Create

To hear the pronunciation of each word, you can visit our Romanian Unification Day vocabulary list, and listen to the audio file alongside each phrase.

7. Reading Practice: Alexander Ioan Cuza

Read, in Romanian, this paragraph about Alexander Ioan Cuza—the man who came to rule the united Moldavia and Wallachia!

1- Romanian

După ce a fost ales pe tronurile Moldovei și Valahiei, Alexandru Ioan Cuza a început să facă unii pași pentru unirea Principatelor Române într-o singură națiune. El a încercat să obțină recunoașterea oficială a celor două principate de către restul lumii, iar unii dintre liderii europeni, precum Napoleon al III-lea al Franței, au fost de acord să recunoască unirea, deși ministrul austriac a refuzat să o aprobe la Congresul de la Paris, din 1858. Din cauza problemelor recunoașterii unirii de către restul Europei, sultanul Abdulaziz al Imperiului Otoman nu a recunoscut autoritatea lui Cuza până în 1861.

2- English Translation

After being elected to the thrones of both Moldavia and Wallachia, Alexandru Ioan Cuza began making strides toward bringing the Romanian Principalities together into one nation. He sought to get the combination of the two principalities formally recognized by the rest of the world, and some European leaders, like Napoleon III of France, agreed to recognize the union, although the Austrian ministry refused to approve it at the 1858 Congress of Paris. Because of the problems getting the union recognized by the rest of Europe, Sultan Abdulaziz of the Ottoman Empire didn’t recognize his authority until 1861.

Of course, one of the main characters in the dance is the bear, but a gypsy also features prominently in the story behind the dance. The gypsy chains up the bear and forces it to perform to earn money. The Dance of the Goat symbolizes nature’s death and rebirth and includes elders and beautiful and ugly people in addition to a goat.

Happy New Year!
Să ai un An Nou fericit!

Here are our Top 10 New Year’s resolutions at RomanianPod101 – what are yours?

New Year's Resolutions

1- Read more

Citește mai mult.

Reading is a fantastic skill that everyone can benefit from. You’re a business person? Apparently, successful business men and women read up to 60 books a year. This probably excludes fiction, so better scan your library or Amazon for the top business reads if you plan to follow in the footsteps of the successful! Otherwise, why not make it your resolution to read more Romanian in the new year? You will be surprised by how much this will improve your Romanian language skills!

2- Spend more time with family

Petrece mai mult timp cu familia.

Former US President George Bush’s wife, Barbara Bush, was quoted as having said this: “At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, a parent.” This is very true! Relationships are often what gives life meaning, so this is a worthy resolution for any year.

3- Lose weight


Hands up, how many of you made this new year’s resolution last year too…?! This is a notoriously difficult goal to keep, as it takes a lot of self discipline not to eat unhealthily. Good luck with this one, and avoid unhealthy fad diets!

4- Save money

Economisește bani.

Another common and difficult resolution! However, no one has ever been sorry when they saved towards reaching a goal. Make it your resolution to save money to upgrade your subscription to RomanianPod101’s Premium PLUS option in the new year – it will be money well spent!

5- Quit smoking

Renunță la fumat.

This is a resolution that you should definitely keep, or your body could punish you severely later! Smoking is a harmful habit with many hazardous effects on your health. Do everything in your power to make this resolution come true in the new year, as your health is your most precious asset.

6- Learn something new

Învață ceva nou.

Science has proven that learning new skills can help keep brain diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s at bay! It can even slow down the progression of the disease. So, keep your brain healthy by learning to speak a new language, studying towards a qualification, learning how to sew, or how to play chess – no matter how old you are, the possibilities are infinite!

7- Drink less

Bea mai puțin.

This is another health resolution that is good to heed any time of the year. Excessive drinking is associated with many diseases, and its effect can be very detrimental to good relationships too. Alcohol is a poison and harmful for the body in large quantities!

8- Exercise regularly

Fă sport regulat.

This resolution goes hand-in-hand with ‘Lose weight’! An inactive body is an unhealthy and often overweight one, so give this resolution priority in the new year.

9- Eat healthy

Mâncă sănătos.

If you stick with this resolution, you will lose weight and feel better in general. It is a very worthy goal to have!

1. How to Celebrate Christmas in Romania

Christmas Words in Romanian

Did you know?

Because Romanian Christmas meals are centered on pork, the slaughter of a pig plays a major role in the festivities. On St. Ignatie Day, which is December 20, Romanians traditionally slaughter the pig they will cook for their Christmas meal. Traditionally, it was believed that the night before St. Ignatie Day, the pigs would dream about their death the following day. The slaughter of the pig symbolizes the death and resurrection of Christ. After the slaughter, Romanians prepare the pig by burning the skin, removing the rest of the hair, and cleaning it with water. This pig slaughtering tradition is more common in rural areas than in urban ones.
