Hello everyone, I found a video of old Romanian and I would like to share it with you all.

As a Romanian native, I could understand many of the words and such, but it's really really different from the language today, being pretty hard to decipher but myself what it means, especially in the first and last paragraphs; still, it was pretty nice :)

The parts you have trouble understanding are in old Russian. :)

Hi. The beginning (0:00-0:14) and the end (1:42-end) is not old romanian but old slavonic language (some words are pretty close to modern russian or bulgarian). As a romanian native, i understand almost everything (in this video, some words are not properly pronounced). It's nice to see that some people like you are interested in such things ✌.

Am avut o presimtire ca acele parti nu au fost romana dar multumesc pentru clarificare! (Scuze, daca am facut niste greseli)

Da, erau propozitii utilizate ca formule de adresare. "acele parti nu au fost romana" -> "acele parti nu au fost ÎN romana". Te descurci foarte bine in limba romana :).

Good stuff. Watch out, page one, the formal address ("Mudromu i plemenitomu..." etc.), is actually in old Russian (or, more properly, East Slavic). The rest is in old Romanian. Dar vocea este generată de calculator? (The voice is computer-generated?)
