An estimated 6,000 homeless people live in the network of sewers and tunnels beneath the streets of Bucharest. Many were born underground and are now having children themselves. It's a world of its own, a world full of drugs, disease and poverty that's developed beneath the capital. Read more: http://www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
Jilava prison is a 30-minute drive from Bucharest. During Ceaucescu's communist regime, it was the most notorious prison in the country - but today most of the inmates are white collar criminals like Bodgan Paiu, who made a fortune with Internet fraud. The Romanian government is now planning to clamp down on Internet crime. But so far, the newly formed special police unit based in the capital seems unable to rise to the challenge.
Clashes erupted between demonstrators and police in Romania as around 125,000 people took to the streets of Bucharest in protest against new emergency ordinance that decriminalizes the theft of public funds under $47,000.

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
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.
Numerous old palaces and villas in Romania are falling prey to neglect. Investors are being deliberately discouraged as former officers of the Securitate secret police attempt to win control over the Romanian real estate market.The aristocratic Kemeny family has been fighting a legal battle with the Romanian authorities for almost 20 years in order to win back some of its stately homes and estates in Transylvania. But the prospects are poor. One residence was turned into a mental hospital, for example, while another case was restarted due to procedural errors. The family is facing a war of attrition waged by former Securitate officers, who are busy securing the best properties on the market for themselves.
For the first time, Romania's judicial system is looking for those responsible for the mass murder of political prisoners during the communist era.The detention center in Ramnicu Sarat in eastern Romania was a dreaded place. Under the supervision of prison commander Alexandru Visinescu, intellectuals, members of the clergy and politicians who criticized the regime were detained here between 1956 and 1963. Now Romania's highest public prosecutor has started proceedings against the 88-year-old. Visinescu is said to have excelled in the mass murders of political dissidents. For victims and their relatives, the trial is only the beginning. More than 600,000 people in Romania were imprisoned on political grounds after World War II. One in five didn't survive imprisonment.

Entire forests are being illegally cut down in Romania. Lax forestry policies are facilitating the deforestation. Residents have to cope with more frequent flooding. Read more: http://www.dw.de/european-journal-the-magazine-from-brussels-2012-11-07/e-16314962-9798
In Baia Mare, Romania, the mayor has erected a two-meter-high concrete wall around Roma housing projects, effectively ghettoizing the community. Residents are outraged.They see the wall as discriminatory and a breach of both Romanian and international law. But other locals who have long been complaining about noise and disorder in the area have welcomed the measure. Reader comments in Bucharest newspapers also suggest public support for the wall. A village in Transylvania has followed suit and built a similar wall - one that's three meters high.
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. The authorities promised residents that they could relocate to the downstream island of Simian and that everything would be rebuilt there. But Simian is now a waste land.

In the village of Gârbova in the Transylvania region of Romania, the old customs of the local ethnic Germans, the "Transylvanian Saxons," guarantee harmony in the community. But now there is trouble with the European Union.

Romanias dictator Nicolae Ceaucescu was executed 20 years ago. But his infamous secret service is still around. The old cliques manipulate the old files,intimidate journalists,and take key positions in the economy.Herta Müller,the ethnic German Literature Nobel Prize winner from Romania,has described the machinations of the Securitate. After she emigrated to Germany in 1987,it spread rumors that she herself was a communist agent. Even today,when she goes on reading tours through her old homeland,the Securitate shadows her.
A small community in the Northwestern county of Satu Mare in Romania threatened to unleash violence if the Government proceeds with its partnership with an NGO to build a "refugees" centre in their hometown.
