Romanian name:"Tara Romaneasca" (or "Valahia")
"Vlachs" is the term used by the
Slavic and German neighbors refering to Romanians and it means
(Romance-language speakers): for example Polish people
still refer to Italians as "Wlochy" for the same reason.
Romanians rarely use the name "Valahia" referring to
themselves. The old name of the region is "Tara Romaneasca
(pronounced "tza-rah-raw-ma-nes-cah") which means (The Land of
the Romanians). Bucharest historically belongs to "Tara
Romaneasca", the region that became the political gravity center of
Romania. "Muntenia" literally means "from
the mountains", referring to the high altitude
location of the old Wallchian capitals, before the capital was
moved to the lowlands, in Bucharest.
