For your knowledge, those people who beg for many are gipsy, NOT ROMANIANS. They were originally slaves and that's why most of the countries have them in their countries. And if you would ask a Romanian or a Bulgarian, they would both say that they are Gipsy not Romanians or Bulgarians. And another thing that you should know is that they are from India and they were taken from there to work in European countries, so that's why they lack so much knowledge and are lazy.

Anyone holding a Romanian passport is considered Romanian.
They might have been born in Taiwan and have Chinese parents, but if Romania issues them a valid passport, then they are a recognized citizen of that nation.
There are hundreds of thousands of Americans, with USA passports who were not born in the US.

So you are saying that all people from India are ignorant and lazy? That is pure unadulterated bigotry. Sundar Pichai, an Indian, is Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Google. And Satya Narayana Nadella (also Indian) is CEO of Microsoft. You should do as well.
How your travel has been in Romania?
they were born and raised in romania , of course they have romanian passports , just think about it , it's about their ethnicity not about the nationality .

i worked with Romanian guy before in my country and that was 5 years ago, and he is so nice guy. also i have many Romanian friends i met in social network and really that are also nice. maybe one day i can go there for short trip.
I don't blame you or others like you for thinking that romanians are the same as gypsies, because it is just a big confusion. It is true that gypsies have romanian passport, but they are not ethnically romanians. They are an indian population that came in Europe more that 10 centuries ago. You can find out whether a person is gypsy or not by simply looking at their skin (which is darker that a romanian's), at their faces (they have asian faces, while romanians don't because they are a latin european population).
I hope this will help you understand better the difference between romanians and gypsies.
PS: It is true that Romania is not as modern as Finland, but this doesn't mean that we don't want to be better.

Everybody knows that, and no one has tried to deny it. There are Gypsies all over the world, even in Scandinavia and Finland. Those Gypsies that live in Finland and consequently can have a Finnish passport if they like are Finns. However, during my long life I have never seen one of them begging for money on the streets of Helsinki. Our first "professional" beggars arrived in 2007 after Romania became a member of the EU.

Fortunately our Parliament is seriously considering passing a law that makes begging illegal and we and all the tourists visiting Helsinki may get rid of the beggars, who are an eyesore.

Panhandling is a problem here. These people are usually living on the street, and many are mentally ill.
Our city has laws regulating panhandling, but the laws are worthless. If a panhandler get a ticket, or are put in jail for a day, they just return to their corner the next day. They have no money to pay the fine, no address or phone number to contact them.
