DECEMBER 1 - Romania National Day

This day memorializes the unification of Transylvania into 'Greater Romania' in 1918 (formalized by international treaty in 1920) as well as Basarabia and Bucovina.
In the immediate wake of the break-up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire after WW I, on December 1, 1918, citizens of Transylvania, Banat County, Crisana County and Maramures County met in the city of Alba-Iulia and voted to join Romania. This was ratified in the Romanian Chamber of Deputies and Senate on Dec, 29th. This act was internationally formalized by the signing of the Treaty of Trianon on June 4, 1920, between Romania and Hungary. This brought the three provinces of Wallachia, Moldavia, and Transylvania into the united kingdom of Romania.
