A topic of actuality nowadays refers to accessing European funds. In this paper, we will focus on tourism development in rural areas, through European funds. We have chosen this approach because Romania has a great potential in terms of tourism, but unfortunately this potential is not explored enough . We will try to determine the extent to which EU funds are accessed for tourism activities in rural areas, both at national level, and in the North-West region. Based on the findings, we will try some recommendations for increasing the accession rate.
