Tourist activities related to a certain destination should be carried out as part of a balanced relationship between tourist demand and tourist offer, which can be determined based on specific indicators. In this respect, two specific indicators were applied – one belonging to the tourist demand and the other one belonging to the tourist offer – in order to see the level of the development of tourism in the territorial administrative units in Braşov County, many of these being well established tourist destinations or potential ones. The results showed the existence of six categories (of the nine possible in theory) in which the tourist destinations in the Brasov county fall depending on the level of development of tourism demand and tourism offer as well as on the existence of a strong concentration of tourism in certain localities in the county. Also, depending on the categorization of each locality, a few strategic approaches have been presented in which some future directions of development have been outlined.
