When thinking of Europe, people tend to choose Greece, Italy, France or Spain as a destination. Although Romania has amazing landscapes, great weather and friendly people it is often overlooked as a holiday destination due to lack of promotion and awareness.
The good news is that Romania is slowly becoming popular with UK tourists according to Lonely Planet. Did you know that there was an increase of 638% of UK travellers to Romania between 2007 and 2017? The Go Tours, a guided group tour company has examined the data from the United Nations World Tourism Organization 2018 Tourism Highlights Reports and has found that Romania is the fastest growing holiday destination for the British.
While we love to highlight on our website and on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram the beauty of Romania, most international media does not focus on our country as much as other popular destinations like, let’s say France.
Lonely Planet has praised our country in a beautiful way:
“Romania has a lot of varied experiences to offer visitors, of course. Its stone churches and dazzling monasteries dot a pristine landscape of rocky mountains and rolling hills. Transylvanian towns have stepped out of time and have jaw-dropping castles pitched precariously on rocky hilltops, while vibrant Bucharest is all energy. The rocky peaks of Transylvania and Moldavia, snow-capped from mid-October in some years, call out for conquering, and well-marked trails lead to summits from all directions.”
What other countries were in the report? Lithuania came in second and Mexico came in third. The 4th was Hungary,
