The Unification of the Romanian Principalities, known as the Little Union (the Great Union being the one from December 1, 1918, in Alba Iulia), represents the unification of the old principals, Moldova and Wallachia, in a united Principality.

 In the middle of the nineteenth century, the fates of Moldavia and Wallachia were in the hands of Russia and the Ottoman Empire, opposed to their unions.

The situation has changed since the Crimean War between 1853 and 1856, when Russia was defeated by the Great Powers, consisting of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, the French Empire, the Kingdom of Sardinia, and the Ottoman Empire.

The anniversary of the Union of Romanian Principalities Day falls in 2018 on Wednesday, being the third free day of the year. This year, Romanians will also have 14 days of legal holidays.

Nearly 100 events will take place across the country on Union Day, with over 100,000 people expected. More than 3,500 Ministry of Interior staff will act to ensure public order measures at almost 100 homage events organized at national level in the context of the celebration of the Romanian Principality of Romania, which is expected to have over 100,000 people.
