Some species of ground beetle, but I have no knowledge of what one finds in Romania.

Not a ground beetle at all, but a female blister beetle in the genus Meloe - look up 'oil beetle'...

Thought its abdomen looked too broad for a blister beetle, but then, my knowledge of insects is pretty casual. Sorry for the mis-info.
