This is the place where the Great Union ceremony was held.

Great Union Day (Ziua Marii Uniri) occurring on December 1, is the national holiday of Romania. It commemorates the assembly of the delegates of ethnic Romanians held in Alba Iulia, which declared the Union of Transylvania with Romania.

This holiday was set after the 1989 Romanian Revolution and it marks the unification of Transylvania, but also of the provinces of Bessarabia and Bukovina with the Romanian Kingdom, in 1918.

Prior to 1948, the national holiday of Romania was set to be on May 10, which had a double meaning: it was the day on which Carol I set foot on the Romanian soil (in 1866), and it was the day on which the prince ratified the Declaration of Independence (from the Ottoman Empire) in 1877.

In Communist Romania, the date of the national holiday was set to August 23 to mark the 1944 overthrow of the pro-fascist government of Marshal Ion Antonescu.

Hello Daniel,
Congratulations on your national day!
I haven't visited Alba Iulia when I was in Romania but I think it's also a very interesting historical town.
This looks like a very quite but picturesque square.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Daniel
la piazza è molto bella, e l'hai saputa Iinserire in una composizione molto interessante, i colori sono quanto di meglio potevi sperare e la luce di una bella giornata di sole ti ha aiutato nel proposito di celebrare questa importante piazza.
Molto interessanti anche le note che spiegano in maniera più che esauriente il titolo della foto.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

Hello Daniel,
A fine capture of this impressive square. I like the point of view and the focal point offered by the statue. The few people bring the scene to life and offer a good sense of scale. The image is well lit and has good colours and sharpness. Attractive warm and cool tonal contrasts.

Bonjour Daniel,

On se sent tout bizarre quand on constate que tu peux faire aussi des cadrages classiques. Le point de vue est parfait sur cette belle petite place ensoleillée.



  • Great

Ciao Daniel

A marvellous richly saturated blue sky that contrasts well against the red tile roofs and yellow facade of the building at left. Good sharpness with excellent shadow detail and the people add scale and context. Happy Romania Day! Tfs!
