The pronunciation of the word "Paştele" is "un"Romanian...

i don;'t know what Good Friday or Vinerea Mare are . is it what we call VENDREDI SAINT in French ?

Vinerea Mare is the Friday before Easter.

Yes, or Viernes Santo in Spanish, Venerdì Santo in italiano or Sexta-feira Santa in Portuguese. In fact, I suspect that owing to the fact Romania is an Orthodox country rather than Catholic, Romanian is the one romance language that eschews the "Holy Friday" theme.
