#Borders – Greater Romania

In 1918, after the incorporation of Transylvania, Bukovina, and Bessarabia, the Romanian state reached its largest geographical extent ever: 295.049 km².

The term Greater Romania was coined during the Paris peace conference and the Treaty of Versailles (1920), to refer to the new extended borders of Romania and, as a concept, the re-creation of a nation-state which would incorporate all Romanian speakers. After world war II, Greater Romania remained as the expression denoting the Kingdom of Romania during the interwar period.
