Romania in the Global Competitiveness Report

The Global Competitiveness Report

 

În clasamentul general, România este pe locul 68 din 137 de țări. Optimistul as spune că undeva pe la mijloc, ba chiar în prima jumătate…

Conform rezultatelor, în oricare dintre următoarele țări e mai bine, și nu vorbesc de Elveția, SUA sau Singapore (locurile 1-3) sau alte țări despre care știm și pe care le dorim. Ci despre: Azerbaijan (35), Bahrain (44), Brunei Darussalam (46), Bulgaria (49), Viet Nam, Philippines, Kazakhstan, Rwanda (55-59), Oman, Botswana (62-63), Colombia (66).

Sarmizegetusa Regia, Romania

Sarmizegetusa Regia was the capital and the most important military, religious and political center of Dacia before the wars with the Roman Empire (101-102 and 105-106). Decebal (Decebalus) was the last king of Dacia. he was defeated by the Roman Emperor Traian (Trajan). The latter will move the capital to Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa (so don’t confuse the two).

In the first century of our era, Histria was occupied by the Romans. It was destroyed by the invasions of the Avars and the Slavs in the 7th century AD. Now, the ruins are witnesses of its rich history. Enjoy a picture of Histria. For more photography (of Histria and more), see the volume on Amazon:
