Easter is an important holiday on the Romanian calendar. Romanians, the majority of whom adhere to Orthodox Christianity, place significance on this holiday more than any others, including Christmas.
This day is marked by family gatherings, special foods and the decoration of Easter eggs in traditional Romanian style. The days leading up to Easter are also important and are marked by traditions similar to those throughout the Christian world.Â
You can visit Easter markets for a sense of some of these generations-old customs and buy crafts made with techniques developed over hundreds of years.
