Today, pioneering young vintners in places like the Târnava valley of Transylvania are trying to revive that tradition. European Union membership has been a boon for Romanian vintners.

  • Romania: Rivers Run Dry | European Journal

    Hydroelectric power is booming in Romania. Government subsidies are drawing more and more investment into the sector. Conservationists, however, argue that while hydropower does not produce greenhouse gases, too many dams could cause entire rivers to dry up in the summer. They point to the southern Carpathian Mountains, where about 500 hydroelectric power plants - some still being built - are located. The wild rapids at these sites are particularly lucrative for investors. At the same time, many of the projects are also located in conservation areas, and the damage to habitats is severe. Residents of the region are fighting to keep the remaining streams and rivers in Romania untouched. For more go to http://www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
