National Anthem: Romania - Deșteaptă-te, române! 4.5
"Deșteaptă-te, române!" Romanian (variously translated as "Awaken thee, Romanian!", "Awaken, Romanian!", or "Wake up, Romanian!") is the national anthem of Romania.

The lyrics were composed by Andrei Mureșanu (1816–1863) and the music was popular (it was chosen for the poem by Gheorghe Ucenescu, as most sources say). It was written and published during the 1848 revolution, initially with the name "Un răsunet" ("An echo"). It was first sung in late June in the same year in the city of Brașov, on the streets of Șchei quarter. It was immediately accepted as the revolutionary anthem and renamed "Deșteaptă-te, române".

Since then, this song, which contains a message of liberty and patriotism, has been sung during all major Romanian conflicts, including during the 1989 anti-Ceaușist revolution. After that revolution, it became the national anthem, replacing the communist-era national anthem "Trei culori" ("Three colors").

July 29 is now "National Anthem Day" (Ziua Imnului național), an annual observance in Romania.

The song was also used on various solemn occasions in the Moldavian Democratic Republic, during its brief existence, between 1917 and 1918. Between 1991 and 1994 it was the national anthem of Moldova as well, but was subsequently replaced by the current Moldovan anthem, "Limba noastră" ("Our language").

It's one of the rare anthems that I can instantly recognize thanks to Romanian gymnasts winning hundreds of gold medals in international competitions

It's weird because most of the anthems are played in a major chord, but it isn't the case with the Romanian anthem which is played in a minor chord. But this national anthem is my favourite! Very patriotic! Greetings from Switzerland! 😄😄🇨🇭🇨🇭

Even though our two nations do not really get along, I still have a lot of respect for Romania. We must not let history divide us, but have a stronger future together. I may be Hungarian, but I love my Romanian brothers and sisters. We may have conflict, but a majority is over stupid reasons. I know that a main conflict between us is who Transylvania belongs to. It was at first part of Hungarian territory and Hungary controlled Romania, but that was back when Vlad Tepes was still alive. After WW1 Romania gained control of Transylvania until WW2 when Hitler gave Transylvania back to Hungary. After that war, Romania gained it again. We can just say that both nations are entitled to it, but Romania is looking after it. Hungarians may live in Transylvania and have a great life, and Romanians can live in Budapest, Pecs, or wherever and have a great life as well. Anyway, lots of respect and blessings to Romania from a person from Hungary who loves Romania!

This is the moldavian version (up to 1991 or 1994, I don't remember) and not the Romanian version, it's a bit different: 1:52 says "La patria Romana" in the song instead of "Romana natiune"

Mistake at 1:28 in translation. Instead of "Trajan", the Roman emperor, like it should be, but it's "Trojan". In the next sequence it's correct
