The territory's recorded history encompasses such eras as the Dacians, Roman Empire (origination of the Romanian language), Kingdom of Hungary, and Ottoman Empire. As a nation-state, the country was formed by the merging of Moldavia and Wallachia in 1859 and it gained recognition of its independence in 1878. Later, in 1918, the country was expanded with the inclusion of Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia. At the end of World War II, Romania became a member of the Warsaw Pact. With the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, Romania started a series of political and economic reforms, culminating with its membership in the EU in 2007.
