The present paper dealt with the manner how cultural tourism is perceived and how it can develop under the conditions of the economic crisis situation. A primary stage of a research has been carried out – respectively, 196 questionnaires have been tested on a randomly selected population of Romanians. This phase represents a starting point of further researches on this topic. The results can be considered valuable but not fully representative. The main concerns of our paper are: the present-day development of cultural tourism in Romania and Transylvania (especially in the County of Cluj); Romanian visitors’ attitude towards: culture and tourism; their holiday consumption behavior; their budgetary allocations for tourism and culture; the notoriety of several types of destinations from Romania, Transylvania and Cluj County. Our conclusions try to signal a few things that must be done concerning tourism and cultural development in Romania while confronting the economic crisis.
