Romania and Transylvania

I recently had the privilege of getting an email from the Romanian Consulate in regards to my book.

It was cool. In it, I asked them about Transylvania and what the area is a part of. One of the most interesting responses as that Traditionally they regard Transylvania as being a part of Romania, and the Banat and other smaller territories fall under the region.

I asked why in another email.

The reply?

It is easier for most of the other countries outside of Europe to think in bigger territory than smaller. I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to tell others of all the smaller areas in Romania instead of just the "three main ones" (Moldavia, Wallachia and Transylvania.)

that is silly, I would be more interested in the different regions big or small.
