28 August 2008 | Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey are among the most popular destinations among Romanian tourists, national media reported today.
Greece tops the favoured destinations list, according to the Evenimentul Zilei newspaper, which cited data by Romania’s national tourist agency association, ANAT. Turkey, on the other hand, marks the biggest growth in interest by tour agencies, while Bulgaria – despite enjoying great popularity, is undergoing a slow but sure decline in interest.
In addition, the number of Romanian tourists who spend their holidays abroad increased by 25 per cent compared to 2007,according to the published data.
“This is the last year that marks a large growth in the tourists in the sector – gradually the market will even out and the number of tourists will not undergo great variations,” Traian Bădulescu, spokesperson of ANAT, told media.
