  ROMANIA TOURISM AND SUBSECTORS Main Tourism Offer -tourism Health and wellness tourism SUBSECTORS In the following tables we will sintethize some significant data and information about Adventure, Cultural and Blue tourism in Romania. ADVENTURE TOURISM IN SUMMARY Overview  According to the Adventure Tourism Development Index (ATDI), Romania ranks among the top 10 most attractive emerging countries for adventure tourism, offering both land and water adventure.  Biking concentrates in the routes of medieval towns and castles in Transylvania region; hiking and skiing are mostly developed in the Carpathian mountains (with high level ski resorts established in Poiana Brasov, Sinaia, Predeal, Paltinis and Runcu). Finally rafting is a very popular attraction in rivers like Crisul Repede, Jiu, Cerna and Nera.  This notwithstanding, till recently adventure tourism in Romania was considered underdeveloped in comparison to other competitors. Starting from 2007 Adventure tourism has been explicitly recognised by several research and studies as a key area of development given both mountain and hydrographic potential of the country. Attention to active tourism as a specific market segment has grown within a broader approach to tourism market segmentation to respond to a diversified demand.  Till recently initiatives came mainly from the private sector who was able to more quickly register and respond to new tourist demands although missing central coordination and public investment which is now strongly advocated. Main services and products  Paragliding/skydiving  Climbing  Cycling and Mountain biking  Hiking  Skiing and snowboarding  Canoeing/kayaking Trend and prospects Recently the government has recognised itself the potential of adventure tourism and the need to support private operators in the sectors through ad hoc central planning, investment and coordination. Focus is on developing infrastructures and working on cross- border cooperation to value strategic areas (the Carpathian and the Danube) creating conditions for sustainable tourism development. In the initiative are Funding for the National Network of Cycling Routes and plans for the development of two European cycling routes that pass through Romania: The Iron Curtain Trail Route  –  EuroVelo 13 and the route from the Atlantic to the Black Sea  –  EuroVelo 6 that passes along the Danube . Participation in the Framework Convention on the Protection and Sustainable Development of the Carpathians and setting a coordinated approach to Tourism in the region and in the Datourway project (Transnational Strategy for the Sustainable Territorial Development of the Danube Area with special regard to Tourism) CULTURAL TOURISM IN SUMMARY Overview   Cultural tourism is a fairly developed product in Romania, thanks to a rich patrimony of well-preserved architectural monuments (included UNESCO world heritage) as well as folklore and traditions around which smart operators have shaped a diversifed offer.    The market is populated by several agencies specialised in heritage tourism that offer services such as standard tours, themed tours, special tours, Bucharest tour, as well as “on - demand” tours.  Rural tourism (and eco-tourism) have also has recorded important growth during the past years, both in terms of quality and quantity, by the expansion of accommodation structures in rural areas, due to private investors and financing through EU funds.  Finally Romania is investing in promoting many events to celebrate ancient heritage, changing seasons, religious holidays and life-cycle events, such as birth, marriage and death, with festivals that have remained unchanged for centuries.  The challenges that cultural tourism is facing are related to outdated and inadequate infrastructures for accessing archaeological sites, lack of parking spaces provided with information points, lack of belvedere points for fortifications, fortresses medieval, churches, historic monuments and monasteries, the lack of special facilities for camping for pilgrimage tourism. Main services and products  Museums  Cities tours  Folklore and events  Historical tours Trend and prospects The Romanian government is currently implementing several initiatives to promote cultural tourism, among which for instance the Oltenia Project  –  mobilising resources to promote the quality of cultural tourism services in Oltenia region , one of the richest historical regions in the country. Beyond ad hoc project, Romania shall however spend serious effort to tackle a series of structural obstacles which prevent full development of cultural tourism, namely insufficient promotion, a little developed network of tourist information centres, insufficient funding for rural tourism development, little diversification as far as the tourism offer is concerned, poor guide training and insufficient education, inappropriate infrastructure. This is central also to foster urban tourism which has been recognised a great potential but would remain concentrated in Bucharest unless the country invest in a better promotional activity of cities as tourism destinations, infrastructure and access ways as well as regional airports development. BLUE TOURISM IN SUMMARY Overview  Blue tourism is a promising sector in Romania which articulates mainly around coastal tourism in the Black sea resorts, as a result of a major investments program in tourism infrastructure carried out by the government, followed by cruising and fishing.  Coastal tourism has been for long the main attraction for Romanians, thanks also to specific market campaigns aimed to promote domestic tourism.  Cruising has been recently recognised potential for further expansion. It mainly concentrates on the Danube River and Delta with a tourism offer which is mostly oriented on sightseeing.  Romania is taking part in different programme such as: ConcerTour - Concerted Innovative Approaches, Strategies, Solutions and Services Improving Mobility and European Tourism, aiming at developing Black Sea tourism also through intensified cross border cooperation with Bulgaria. Main services and products  River Cruising  Guided tour  Boating Trend and prospects  Danube cruises are mentioned in the Master Plan 2007-2026 as a strategic for the development of Romanian tourism and priority is put on qualifying shore facilities to not measure up to those of the other countries on the Danube course.
