Language and population of Romania


In Romania there are several spoken languages. Beside Romanian, the only official language nationwide, other spoken languages include Hungarian, Romani, Ukrainian, and German.


About 89% of the people are ethnic Romanians, a group that--in contrast to its Slav or Hungarian neighbors--traces itself to Latin-speaking Romans who in the second and third centuries A.D. conquered and settled among the ancient Dacians, a Thracian people.

As a result, the Romanian language, although containing elements of Slavic, Turkish, and other languages, is a Romance language related to French and Italian.


Romanian 91% (official), Hungarian 6.7%, Romany (Gypsy) 1.1%, other 1.2%
