The popularity of Romania as a holiday destination is set to increase in the next few years, an airline has predicted.
Low-cost carrier Wizz Air said the country offered a range of attractions to visitors, potentially making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe
Natasa Kazmer, the airline’s head of corporate communications and public affairs, commented: “It has a booming capital, picturesque countryside and the beautiful beaches of the Black Sea.”
She added that since budget carriers had made travel to Romania quick and affordable, it was now well-placed to become the new “must-see place of Europe”.
The country’s growing popularity with holidaymakers could also boost its appeal as an overseas property investment spot.
This week, Wizz Air announced the launch of a new service between the Romanian capital Bucharest and Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
According to the American Automobile Association, Romania experienced a 700 per cent increase in the number of US tourists this year.
