Data gathered concerning travel and tourism in Romania in 2012 has been released by the National Statistics Institute, and the period appears to be a successful one according to these figures. Over 41,500 people visited the beautiful Danube Delta last year, including both Romanian tourists and international visitors.
Around 15% of total visitors came from abroad and stayed in local accommodation, but this does not account for the hundreds of people who enjoyed cruising along the Danube in a luxury river cruise ship.
The River Danube has a great deal to offer those looking for a luxury holiday, from iconic cultural centres such as Vienna and Budapest to outstanding natural beauty, and with the Danube Delta proving to be a hit in 2012, there has never been a better time to travel to Romania.
