By tradition, Romania’s religion is orthodox. The romanians are usually religious people and the national celebrations as well as other traditions connected to the church, are still very important.
Some of the most important celebrations include St. Andrew’s Day (November 30 th), St. John’s Day (January 7 th), St. Michael’s Day (November 8 th), Christmas (December 25 th), St. Constantin and Elena (May 21 st).
Over the centuries, many orthodox churches were built all over Romania. Some of the most famous are: Polovragi (Gorj County), Dintr-un lemn (Valcea County), Horezu (Valcea County), Stavropoleos (Bucharest), Voronet (Bucovina).
The churches are a testimony of the old traditional romanian architectural style.
