Due to its geographical position, at the intersection of many transcontinental roads, this region has always been an important connection point, where different towns acted as political, administrative, cultural or economical centres of Romania throughout the ages. Even nowadays, Bucharest, situated in the centre of Muntenia Region, is the Capital of Romania and the largest metropolis in South-Eastern Europe.
