Romania’s National Day
On 1 December 2014, Alba Iulia expects a record of tourists, given that more than 20,000 people will take part in the events dedicated to Romania’s National Day celebration.
Concerts, fireworks and high-level visits will transform Alba Iulia into a magical city that will be the center of attention in these early days of the winter holiday season.
As historical significance, December 1 is the National Day of Romania, adopted by law after removing the communist regime. On December 1, 1918, the National Assembly in Alba Iulia passed a resolution that sanctioned the union of all Romanians (the union of Transylvania, Banat, Crisana and Maramures with Romania).
On this occasion, Alba Iulia authorities have prepared 3 days of performances and events for both residents of Alba Iulia and for tourists who have already announced their visit to „The other Capital of Romania”, as Alba Iulia is already known. According to estimates by the authorities, about 20,000 people will attend the events of December 1.
In addition to the solemn moments of wreaths, a military parade and service of Te Deum held at Coronation Cathedral of Alba Iulia, the day will include a parade with flags. The festivities will conclude with a laser show, concert artists and, finally, there will be tricolor fireworks whose main theme is the „Romanian spirit ” .
Those who arrive in Alba Iulia on the occasion of Romania’s National Day can visit besides Alba Carolina Fortress, other tourist attractions located in Alba county, too. Thus, I recommend (click the links to see pictures):
- Ramet Monastery

- Scărişoara Glacier Cave , another wonder of the Apuseni
