Eurostat declares RomaniaAs per the latest tourism statistics shared by the Eurostat on Tuesday, in the year 2015, Romania was voted as the least preferred touristic destinations in the European Union followed by smaller countries like Latvia, Slovakia, and Luxembourg. International tourists in 2015 have spent only five million nights in the Romanian hotels and accommodations, a statistics that’s twice as low as the one registered in countries like Bulgaria or Hungary in 2015.


Spain was the significant tourist destination in the EU in 2015 for non-residents with 21.3 percent of all nights spent in tourist accommodation establishments in the EU.


The four most preferred destinations for non-residents across the EU, were Spain (270 million nights), Italy (193 million nights), France (130 million nights) and the United Kingdom (118 million nights), which together accounted for more than half (56.2 %) of total nights spent by non-residents in the EU.


Romania, Luxembourg and Latvia were the least common destinations in the list.


In respect to the financial importance of international tourism in 2015, the ratio of travel receipts to GDP was highest, among the EU Member States, in Croatia (18.1 %), Malta (13.4 %) and Cyprus (12.7 %), establishing the importance of tourism to these countries. In absolute terms, the highest international travel receipts in 2015 were recorded in Spain (EUR 50.9 billion), France (EUR 41.4 billion) and the United Kingdom (41.1 billion), followed by Italy (35.6 billion) and Germany (33.3 billion).

  1. Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.

    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  2. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone
    else encountering problems with your blog. It appears as though some
    of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment
    and let me know if this is happening to them as
    well? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Cheers
