The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really existed), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
Romania (Romanian: România) is a country located in southeastern Europe. It borders the Republic of Moldova to the north-east, Hungary to the north-west and Serbia to the south-west, Ukraine to the north and east, and Bulgaria to the south. Its capital city is Bucharest ("București").
After leaving Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Charlie Weasley studied dragons at the Romanian Dragon Sanctuary. In 1991, Students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry believed Quirinus Quirrell's classroom smelled of garlic in order to ward off a vampire he met in Romania who he was afraid would come find him. Molly and Arthur Weasley went to Romania during the Christmas break in 1991 to visit Charlie.
In 2019, at least one of the members of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force was invited to study dragons alongside Dragonologist Charlie Weasley at their Dragon Sanctuary. This experience would later benefit them in the field while working to contain the breaches of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy caused by the Calamity.
It is possible that Romanian wizards and witches had the option to attend the Durmstrang Institute as it accepts students from all over Northern and Eastern Europe, as long as they are of wizarding heritage.
