The starvation was because Ceausescu was trying to pay the loans off. By 1989 Romania was one of the fewest (or maybe the only) country that didn't own one single cent to another country.
And talking about the crime in Romania just because you've seen some news, well, i could say that in Romania you won't get for sure your brains popped off with a gun just like you can in NYC.

They wanted a change. Ceausescu wasn't going to let it go. I would like to remind you that this is communism we are talking about. There wasn't going to be any free elections. Of course they did a bad thing. But since you haven't been here you don't know what you are talking about.
At first opportunity? He was a dictator for more than 25 years.

[mod cut: orphaned] There are many Romanians saying that they were better before the revolution. And don't say that the nation executed Ceausescu. It's not like every single man pulled the trigger.
There are a lot of facts behind this which you obviously don't know.

Here is the short version for you: It all started with some peaceful demonstrations. Ceausescu was affraid that he might loose the power so he ordered the army to start shooting at people to make them back off. But the people wanted the change so much that it didn't matter if they were dying. There were 1104 dead and 3321 wounded. When Ceausescu was finally caught, what did you expect them to do?
In the other ex-communist countries their president wasn't executed, but he didn't order the army to shoot at the people they were supposed to protect.
Ai priceput?

ok, guys - OP asked: what are your thoughts, opinions of Romania, would you visit, consider living there ????
Please stay on topic. Ceausescu is a history and maybe appropriate for a separate thread. This is not what OP is asking about.

Sticking to the topic: OP can visit Romania. It's a beautiful place.

And can someone take care of rebel12? For your records there are less than 3% gypsies in Romania. There might be more in your country.

There is another panpipe musician by the name of Gheorghe Zamfir. He did some of the music for Karate Kid.
