The town of Vişeu de Sus in Maramureș County, certified as a tourist resort of local interest in 2009, receives the new status of tourist resort of national interest, meeting the mandatory minimum criteria.

"Congratulations to all the communities that have become tourist resorts today! In the future, they may opt for the establishment of a Destination Management Organization, developed at the local level, for which it is necessary, among the mandatory minimum criteria, to have this status or the existence of at least 100 accommodation places in the classified structures. At the same time, representing poles of tourist development, the resorts will benefit from new opportunities to attract investors, which will encourage a growing presence of tourists in these areas ", said the Minister of Entrepreneurship and Tourism, Constantin-Daniel Cadariu.

Following the verification of the fulfillment of the legal criteria, including through field visits carried out by the specialists from the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Tourism, at the request of the local public administration authorities, 17 localities were certified as tourist resorts, as follows:

• Pecica city, Arad county;
• Marghita Municipality, Bihor County;
• Vadu Crișului commune, Bihor county;
• Berzasca commune, Caraș - Severin county;
• Coronini commune, Caraş - Severin county;
