The Black Sea resort of Mamaia remains the best-sold Romanian tourist destination, according to a survey conducted by TravelTech News among the travel companies operating in Romania. “The Romanian seaside generally sold this summer in an 80.3 pc proportion, while mountain zones drew less public to travel agencies, with only 11 pc of sales. Mamaia stays in the top of appreciations, with 52 pc of the preferences of the agents that sell holidays in the country,” reads a communiqué sent Wednesday to Agerpres.
Tourism abroad changed its classic all-inclusive trend, bringing Greece to the top of appreciations, with 54 pc. The second and third positions are occupied, with a very small difference between them, by Bulgaria and Turkey, with 31 pc and 27.4 pc respectively. The situation of tour operators looks different from the result obtained by airlines, where the confidence of travel companies focused on TAROM.
TravelTechNews is a tourism news portal. The poll on the tourist activity in Romania, conducted in July, questioned 517 travel agencies, in order to make a classification of the best sold destinations in Romania and abroad and the most reliable tour operators.
RON 3 M investment for the reinforcement of seawalls in 2013
In another context, the ‘Apele Romane’ National Administration (ANAR) plans to spend almost EUR 3 M this year to reinforce seawalls in the coast zone of the Black Sea, in view of reducing the erosion of beaches that lose in average 50 cm/year, dailybusiness.ro reports. The actualised value of investment in seawall restoration works nears RON 216 M, of which RON 119 M was allocated and spent during 2008-2013. Seawall restoration works are financed from the state budget and are expected to end in 2017-2018. ANAR, through the Dobrogea Littoral Water Basin Administration, currently conducts seawall restoration works in Eforie Nord and Sud, Tuzla, Costinesti and the town of Constanta.
