Universal Day of "IA" is a global event created on Facebook in January 2013 by the "La blouse roumaine" community in order to promote the Romanian IA as part of the country brand. The "La blouse roumaine " initiative has launched a truly unprecedented cultural movement in Romania and Moldova. Based on this event we created a community in our town " IAOradea" and we started to have periodical workshops in order to each one of us to create her Romanian traditional blouse called "IA". We work together, we're looking, we're talking about models, trying stitch points, enjoying the progress made and celebrating the moments we can dress up the blouses we've created. What we will do: you will learn how to choose and cut the material to create such a blouse, as well you will choose model you like, trying stitch points also be able to access the specific information regarding this Romanian tradition.
I’m founder of the Oradea City Tours and Professional Tourist Guides Association "ProGuide", national certified tourist guide in Romania . I had several initiatives over the years like: first Free City Tour in our town 2014, first School for tourist guides in our town, first theme tours, also workshops creating our national traditional blouse " IA". I am really passionate about what I do. Over 24 years ago graduated the university since then I worked in travel business different area, but the most I love is guiding. Hope you will be able to enjoy our town by choosing one of the tours.
