Support independent journalism!
It's hard to know what media to trust these days and to keep up with the flood of information.
Imagine a world where you can't tell which information is true and which isn't. What article is paid for by a company or which text is dictated by a politically – biased newspaper owner.
In that world, you are no longer free.
But together, we can prevent that from happening.
Romania Insider is the living proof that journalism can be done ethically. For the last 10 years, we've been a free, independent media voice dedicated to Romania.
You, our reader, can now support us in continuing our mission and providing the truth about Romania, to everyone in the world.
Nobody tells our editor what to publish – and you can make sure we're still around to go by this rule.

Why support us?
Our 4 million+ readers rely on us for daily coverage of Romanian news and politics, as well as celebrations of Romanian culture that help them stay connected. We work free from political or financial bias and are committed to maintaining transparency.
Since 2010, our reporting has offered our readers a vital connection to Romania, from wherever in the world they may be. Stories like “The first electric car made in Romania”, our constant coverage of the Coronavirus impact in Romania or stories about Romanian culture and values showed us that English coverage of Romania is both wanted and valued by our community, as well as a broader group of readers who want to understand Romania better.
A while ago, we asked for your feedback on our work and how we could improve. You responded in hundreds and we were overwhelmed to read your responses. Taking all of your feedback into consideration, we have decided to offer you the chance to become even more involved in Romania Insider’s future. In order to sustain our work and increase our impact, we now seek our readers’ support and increased participation.
