Vodopol (/vɔːdɔːpɔːl/; Romanian: [vodopol]), officially known as the Free City of Vodopol, is a self-declared de facto independent city-state with no international/UN recognition (it is de jure considered part of Romania); As such, it is often referred to as a micronation. Vodopol is located entirely in Southeastern Europe, with its entire territory being surrounded by Romania. It has a predominantly temperate-continental climate. The Free City hosts a population of 3 people, not including an additional 1 citizen living in Romania, outside of its borders. The entire population identifies themselves as Eastern Orthodox Christians and are native speakers of Romanian, a Romance language and one of the two official languages, alongside Latin.
The Free City of Vodopol succeeded the Vlasynian Despotate on 01 August 2021 upon the latter's dissolution.
