AGRITOURISM IN ROMANIA - THE SEARCH FOR SPECIFICITY
Romania has become a renowned destination for those seeking a personalized tourism experience, as welcomed guests in the traditional household. Traditional Romanian villages with households, where authentic small farmer families have lived and worked for centuries, offer today a clear lesson on continuity, tradition, diversity and sustainability. Developing after the fall of the communist regime, agritourism has been integrated organically in the traditional household, perfectly mirroring the agricultural realities and Romanian rural space. The specificity of Romanian agritourism is based on a fundamental trinity: a traditional farm household, rural activities, traditional art and culture. These components are also founded on elements which illustrate the complex reality of the topic.
