Aspects related to the Post-Pandemic Rural Cultural Tourism in Romania
Keywords:rural cultural tourism, post-pandemic tourism, crisis, development, rural life
AbstractIn Romania, rural cultural tourism has had and is expected to continue to have an extremely beneficial impact on the development of certain disadvantaged areas of the country, because it represents an economic driver, a means of capitalizing on resources, and of prompting local and territorial authorities. Thus, it provides medium and long-term contributions to the preservation and promotion of the most authentic and valuable aspects of the Romanian spirit. In what concerns the activities carried out in the rural area with respect to culture, the risk area has been extended during the sanitary crisis; however, the restrictions and the lockdown have been “useful” in increasing awareness of available resources, in planning actions in a more diligent manner and in broadening the vision of what should be done. In the context of the pandemic, all these aspects have become strengths. Post-pandemic tourism should be characterized by rediscovering itself, and the stake for rural cultural tourism in Romania should be the attraction of foreigners. This paper identifies and analyses the aforementioned strong points, which impact the so-called post-pandemic era.
