Romania joined the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994. Romania originally entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993 but failed to qualify for the final. The country is famous for the legendary Dracula and its capital city is Bucharest.

Whilst Romania is yet to score their first victory in the Eurovision Song Contest, the country has finished in the top 5 on 3 occasions. In 2005 and 2010, Romania finished third in the Grand Final which remains the best placing for the country to date.

In 2017, Romania scored its first top 10 place in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2010 with Yodel It by Ilinca ft. Alex Florea. In 2006, they hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Bucharest.
