5 Special Souvenirs from Romania

Going souvenir hunting is one of those parts that almost never misses from a trip. Why? The answer is simple: back at home, going through your collection of items from around the world, you’ll get to relive those wonderful memories from all the places that you have visited! When it comes to choosing a souvenir, make sure you go for unique and traditional memorabilia made by local artists and craftsmen. If you’re not really sure what to choose to remember Romania by, our selection will surely come in handy:

If you visit Romania in the first week of March, then you definitely can’t leave without the traditional “mărțișor”. From the olden days up until present time, men would offer women either a little trinket or flowers adorned with a red and white string as a symbol of their respect and women would wear the trinkets pinned to their clothes. The colours of the string bear significance: the red is said to stand for life and the white for purity. It is said that those who wear the red and white string will be healthy and prosperous throughout the year.





Peasant blouses have been catching on popularity, but an authentic one will surely stand out. A traditional “ie” (the Romanian for peasant blouse) is entirely handmade, from the thin white fabric to the intricate embroidery on the chest and sleeves, bearing patterns that used to tell stories about the wearer, giving clues about age, social status and region. Have your “ie” ready in June, on the 24th the unofficial day of the Romanian blouse is celebrated!
