Public Holidays

Public holidays in Romania 2021-2025

In Romania, most holidays are based on Christian events like Easter and Christmas. As in many Eastern European countries, the date of Easter is not calculated according to the Gregorian calendar, which is usually used, but according to the calendar of the Orthodox Church. Thus Easter always takes place a little later than in our country. In Serbia, for example, the Orthodox calendar is also used to calculate Christmas, bu not in Romania.

Two more special features: The beginning of the year is celebrated with 2 public holidays. And Good Friday is not celebrated at all.
