In Romania, the homeland of Dracula and superstition, witches were pretty much spared from the medieval witch-hunts that plagued most of Europe and killed 100,000 women. In fact, witchcraft here is not only alive; it’s thriving, and it’s even feared by politicians. There are hundreds of witches in the country, and they make and break marriages, cure diseases, cast or release people from good and evil spells, and predict the future. Supposedly, one in ten Romanians visits a witch.

Wine-making is a tradition that goes back thousands years in Romania. At various times in the past, up to 200,000 hectares of land in the region have been devoted to grape-growing. 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. It's opened new markets and brought capital into the area. But local winemakers still face many obstacles, among them local bureaucrats, who often demand bribes in exchange for approving export licenses and awarding EU support and subsidies.

From unknown homeless person to celebrated star of the art scene - and back on the street. The Romanian Ion Barladeanu went on a rollercoaster ride from success to failure.Ion Barladeanu lived for many years in the cellar of a Bucharest apartment building. During the Ceausescu era, he began making collages from old magazines. It was risky work, because many of his collages are biting criticism of the regime. Two years ago, galleries and art critics finally noticed Barladeanu and his unique mixture of Pop Art, Dada, and Surrealism. His work was exhibited in Paris, London, and Basel. But then his new friends dropped him again.

The island of Ada Kaleh on the River Danube used to be filled with bustling activity. But about 40 years ago the island in southern Romania had to be evacuated to because of a hydroelectric plant being installed.

Many Romanian horses are infected with a dangerous virus that causes a blood disease. It is transmitted by biting house and horse flies and illegal animal imports have caused the disease to spread throughout Europe.German horse ranches have already had to destroy dozens of animals. The epidemic has meanwhile already reached Belgium and Britain. The dealers who offer the Romanian horses at dumping prices use a variety of tricks to conceal the animals' origin. Experts estimate that 15 percent of the horses in Romania are infected. And the pathogen is tricky: the animals can carry it for years before it breaks out. But they are highly infectious the whole time.

During the Ceausescu era, tens of thousands were employed in the Jiu mines. Most were unskilled workers from other parts of the country. The turn of the millennium saw the first pit closures and massive protests of miners in Bucharest. Today the miners have given up protesting and are left living in dire poverty. Some even dig for coal to heat their homes for their families. More Information: http://www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
