Historically speaking, we were once part of the Roman Empire, centuries later we learned hungarian, we were visited by the Turks who were Dracula's #1 fan.
A few centuries later we were invited to dine with the Austrians and before becoming the proud nation we are today we even shook hands with the Russians.
All of the people are warm hearted ( as Dracula preferred it ) and most of the people speak English.
