Blessed with a breathtaking scenery of the Carpathian Alps, a vast world-class winemaking province, some of the oldest and best know oil drilling regions known to man and a booming industrial growth, the Prahova County is in the top three most attractive and productive Romanian regions,” reads a release published on www. romaniabroadway.com.

Leaders from the Prahova County Council, the Prefecture, mayors and several community front-runners will join us together with representatives from the North-American Diaspora to celebrate our unique and very special values,” adds the release.
