Welcome to Romania. Part 2 (57 pics+1 video)

Posted in Pictures   9 Jun 2009   / 18528 views

Yesterday's post “Welcome to Romania” has raised a wave of discontent among our visitors from Romania. They wrote angry comments and letters and requests to refute, modify and even remove the post.
We decided not to do so, but simply to explain it.
First. We didn’t make this post by choosing a picture by picture aiming to find the “ugliest” photos. We have just republished a very old collection of pictures, which is already more than 2 years old and which has long ago been around the entire internet and was published on every second site.
Second. We did not want to offend anyone. Izismile is created for other purposes. Do not take everything so personally. If these photos exist and are all over the internet, it means that they have the right to exist on our website too. Plus, everybody knows that there are bad and good things in each country. But sometimes, it’s better to look at bad things with irony and a smile.
Third. This is not the first or the only compilation of this kind.
We already have collections about Russia and Africa.
Fourth. We have no doubt that Romania is a wonderful and beautiful country with nice and kind people.

That is what one of the visitors wrote us. I quote: "I am a big fan of your website...i always check the pics you post every morning before going to work while i drink my coffee. I think they're all amazing. Today when i checked the website i felt really offended because of the pics you posted from Romania. Although they are old and cost you alot like you said, you managed to make me and probably some other Romanian people really sad. The pictures do not reverberate how really Romania is. I hope people who check your website will not get a wrong idea about my country. It's not like the pictures shows. Your thread should have been named gipsies in Romania not welcome to Romania. I'm writing this e-mail in hope that you will find other pics to post there and show the world how beautiful Romania is..You just let some pics with gipsies to speak for themselves about how my country is...It's really wrong and it makes me really angry...Maybe you should take a look at the links below..."

Well, for everyone who wants to learn more about Romania, we have gathered the second part of photographs which gives a glimpse of the country from another angle.
Look.

again from Romania 5 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
I'm writing again hopefully to make a point. It dose not matter if the other pictures are from Romania or not (all of them or some of them). I've seen these images with my own eyes on many occasions live. They are disturbing and at the same time kind of funny, but for a country that has only this kind of publicity (negative that is) after a time it stops being funny and becomes "offending". I'm not offended because I trust the people that are not ignorant not to judge a nation after some individuals, a whole country after a dozen of pictures showing gypsies and some drunks. So thank you Izismile for trying to please everyone.

Thank you very much.

The problem with yesterday's pics, as someone pointed out before, is that Romania always gets those kind of jokes although is a beautiful country with very nice people.

Seeing this pictures makes me want to go there again!!!

The pictures posted yesterday did not make me proud at all... Unfortunately, gypsies are a great part of our population, which is very sad. They have many children, whose legs they break at birth, so that they can send them on the streets to make people give them money. It is a sad situation, but it's not happening only in Romania. There are gypsies in Hungary, in Bulgaria, in the Czech Republic and even in France. I am not saying that all the Romanians are nice people, because there are "bad" Romanians as well. But more than 90% of all the delinquents here in Romania are gypsies!
We are simply taken over by them. :( I currently live in Timisoara, which is a very beautiful city... but guess what? The gypsies buy houses in the centre of the town and the locals buy houses outside the town, to avoid being neighbors to the gypsies! Now, isn't that funny?
Gypsies with the identity card from Romania travel to countries like France, England, Spain, where they steal and harm people. And now the entire Europe is saying that the Romanians are doing that. They are not Romanians, they are Romanian gypsies, born in Romania because the human international laws do not allow our country to kick them out!


P.S.: Thank you for second set of pictures. :)

THIS IS ROMANIA and I am proud to be Romanian, here you are never bored. Gypsies are not Romanians, never were, they are only Gypsies (roomi), they make our country laughable and I grieved when they are consider Romanians.

Hum...

I already know that Romania is a beautiful country but when I come on Izismile, it's for saying "OH !!!", "HAH !!!", "WTF", etc... If I want to see pictures of a "beautiful-but-no-extraordinary-thing", I check a travel agency website etc. I think, but I can be completely out of bounds, that it's not Izismile mission to reflect the beautiful aspects of all contry in the world, but instead to show bizarres picts from all around the world.

To make it short, I live in Canada and when I come here, I don't want to see beautiful picts of my prime minister, I prefer the ones when we saw him put a finger in his nose (or anywhere else 36 ). I come here to laugh !!!

So... Don't be too serious and laugh about yourself a little bit more...

i'm Romanian too and this second unbelievable post had me make this comment. dear izismile your decision to have this second post is making justice indeed and you surprised me so much in a pleasant way. on the other hand I gotta say your first post was not completely wrong. it was romania too, a country that is beautiful and ugly to some extent at the same time. by the way, the second pic from the today picdump, the old woman voting, is from Romania too:) love your website. keep it up!!

So is it cool to show those pictures but not to show the gipsies because they don't reflect the country ? I don't really understand because they are still in the country and even if they don't want strangers to talk about it they will still be there..

So yes those pictures are cool and beautiful but the first pack of pictures IS also the reality !

It's like showing pictures of ferrari in a poor african country ! The reality is not the same

@LiriX: Romania is not a poor country and gypsies are not the reprezentativ population of the country, and ugly is not an atribute of the country. If i will come to your country i'm sure that i will find more gypsises that we have (not all gypsies are romanians) and more poor people that we have. Romania is a beautiful country if you want to see that. France is not so gorgeous as you would think compared with Romania. Romania dose'nt have street riots like in France. You are a quick judger and you are mistaking.

not offended RO 5 year s ago MARK AS SPAM
I think that some people here are missing the point, or have no patience to read the posts (from the "offended") or they are a bunch of immature people. Only the title was wrong, not the content. Showing us the reality should not be a problem, but showing it in a way that only the tabloids do is a problem. Another thing, you are wrong about the gypsies to, like all of us they have their bad weeds. Not all are criminals, so like I said before don't judge a nation, race or anything else so easy. Want to share an opinion or constructive criticism ? Well then get all the facts wright, look in your own back yard and then open your mouth. So in conclusion IZISMILE please show us whatever you want but watch out for the title. rofl

Acum pentru romanii mei : Mai oameni buni, tiganii ni se par asa de dificili pentru ca ei , spre deosebire de noi majoritatea sunt uniti. Macar in cazul asta sa luam exemplu.

[/color]hi i got a problem with this post for two reasons
1st the racist comment made about gypsies as i am one and to make one racist romanian happy you publish some others pics + the racist email
second i though that was your website not a tourist branch of a romanian website where you have to post only beautiful pics there is always many different face to a country and community good and bad and we all have the right to see it
i dont mind seeing pics of poor gypsies but i dont like racist comment specially when you know what some romanian person do to us burn campsite not allowing us water or electricity etc ......
thats for me but i would much appreciate if you remove the racist comment
thanks for reading
sorry my english is not very good [color=#FF0000]

Racist email? Oh please! You know better why gipsies are treated the way they are treated...in Romania and every place they go..If you're one of the honest gipsies, fair enough...good for you! But I dont appreciate my country to be defined by some pictures with a nation that is not Romanian.
Anyway...everyone has the right to his/her own opinion...you respect mine and I'll respect yours. That's how it goes dear tzurla. You defend your kind ... I defend mine.

#30 and #32,

I never said Romania was a bad/poor/whatever country, I've been to Romania and I liked it (girls are beautiful too :) ), I just don't understand what is the problem showing weird/funny pictures of the country ??

We (well at least I am) are intelligent enough to not categorize what we see..

I know romanian don't like gypsies and I guess this is why they leave your country to come to France or elsewhere in Europe, it's not cool but it's reality and you should be ashamed to be ashame of people in YOUR country

The pic of the green building (#15 I think) makes an optical illusion of sorts if you scroll it up and down. It looks like it's coming out of the page.
