Romania, a country of 20 million which hosts a USA ballistic missile defence station, remains among the poorest and most corrupt members of the EU.
The protesters demand the resignation of the government, objecting to the perceived efforts to weaken the judiciary by the governing Social Democrats (PSD), as well as low wages and entrenched corruption in the country.
About 40,000 people gathered in front of government offices in the capital on Saturday evening - fewer than the 100,000 the previous night, shouting "Resignation!, Resignation!", blowing vuvuzelas and waving Romanian and European Union flags.
The demonstrators, many of whom live overseas and returned for the rally, had demanded that the left-wing government resign and that early elections be called.

Some protesters in the capital Bucharest threw bottles and paving slabs, while police used tear gas, pepper spray and even a water cannon.
Three journalists said they were also subjected to police violence. The AP said that Georgian Enache, a police spokesman, said the police pushback on Friday was "legitimate state violence" because protesters were refusing to leave despite warnings.
