Prospects Of Romanian Tourism


  • Ion Cochina
  • Diana Larisa Ionel Tampu


Romania has always found itself on the playground where the great world powers exert their influence. Throughout the centuries, some of these powers completely vanished, others changed and are still in a process of changing, but the geostrategic importance of this zone has not changed in the context of international relations. In spite of all this, Romania does not take advantage of its position at the centre of Eurasia. The country’s infrastructure reflects the great problems it has been facing and the disadvantageous tourism prospects emerging from its situation. Romania is among the states with the worst road infrastructure, and perhaps most importantly, among the states where citizens’ trust in politicians is at the lowers point. In the general global ranking, Romania’s economy is outranked by that of Costa Rica, the Philippines or Malaysia, according to the World Economic Forum 2015-16.
