RWD/ The Project

Romania Without Dracula is an informative blog with a focus on collateral stories about contemporary Romania. Miscellaneous material is arranged in different formats: interviews, encounters,  feature stories, soundtracks but also diary entries, photos, videos…

RWD does not post regularly, much depending on the author’s other offline activities.

Any feedback or comment is welcome, anyone can share any of the RWD content, provided they are so kind to credit RWD’s author for it.
