Approximately 90 percent of Romania’s population practices the Eastern Orthodox Christian religion. Therefore, many of the holidays in this country are based on religious doctrine and cultural observances.
According to Romania’s Labour Code, only eight official holidays are recognized throughout the year. In addition to public holidays, Romania also recognizes religious observances. These observances are not public holidays, and time off is discretionary according to an employment contract or trade union collective bargaining agreement.
Some of the country’s observances include Orthodox Easter Sunday, Orthodox Pentecost, Orthodox Ascension Day, Flag Day, National Anthem Day and seasonal observances.
