A point of tourism information for Romania and Republic of Moldavia
A point of tourism information for Romania and Republic of Moldavia was set up on Saturday, the 28th of September, at the Romanian library “EuropaNova” in Brussels. The event took place as the first edition of the Festival of languages, cultures and spiritualities in Central, Eastern and Balkan Europe was launched, which was dedicated to the Romanian language this year.
“EuropaNova” association has already started in May its demarche to catch the attention towards Romanian culture and spirituality by organizing a voyage in the capital of Romania, which is desired to be something different from the trips that foreign tourists can make in general. Another distinctive note of the project is that so far it has been addressed to groups of people studying the Romanian language in Brussels.
“The project aims to promote Romania in a different way, above all. This means cultural trips, not regular ones where we arrive, visit and leave. We started with two groups of students, it is also a linguistic trip, because there are people studying the Romanian language in Brussels and when we arrive in Bucharest they continue to speak Romanian for 4 days. The trips only took place in Bucharest so far, but from now on we are expanding throughout Romania, including in the Republic of Moldavia”, declared the vice-president of the “EuropaNova” association, Mirela Nita.
Mihaela Carata, from the “Promenada” association, so far addressed two groups of Belgian tourists who came to Bucharest through these “cultural journeys”. At first we go and visit the People’s House and Victory Avenue, the second day we go towards the Cotroceni palace and in the third day we head to Mogosoaia, make a picnic, and when the evening comes we end it with the Village Museum”, she briefly presented the track of such a journey. The organizer claims that thanks to these trips people developed lasting relationships and all of those who came in Romania once claim that they would like to come back, writes economica.net.
