Romania was formed by the merging of Moldavia and Wallachia
in 1859 and it gained recognition of its independence in 1878. Later,
in 1918, they were joined by TransylvaniaBukovina and Bessarabia.

At the end of 
World War II, parts of its territories (roughly the
present day Moldova) were occupied by USSR and Romania became
a member of Warsaw Pact. With the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989,
Romania started a series of political and economic reforms that allowed
for Romania to join the European Union on January 1, 2007.
