Tourism is considered by many, one of the most important components of the world economy. Romania makes no exception from this point of view. After the fall of communism in 1989, many Eastern European countries have tried to develop their domestic tourism in order to increase their incomes. In the present paper, we tried to compare Romania’s tourism with that of other countries from the Central and Eastern Europe. Our main objective is to offer an objective image of the regional tourism market, as we compare indicators for six countries. For our research we have selected five other countries: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. We have selected and calculated a series of indicators for several years (2002-2010) or only for 2010.
