TOP destinations in Romania for the December 1st holiday
Wonderful news for Romanians! This year, the December 1st mini-holiday turns into a real extended vacation, in which Romanians can organize a 5-6 day trip. Although officially only the days of November 30 and December 1 are free, ie Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the Government has decided to turn Monday, November 29, into a non-working day for public servants, so that a bridge can be made with the weekend.
This decision does not apply to employees in the private sector, but most of them have already taken leave for November 29 and have plans for an extended stay.
As expected, most Romanians will spend their free days in the country, the mountain resorts and big cities being the destinations with the most reservations in this mini-holiday, according to the Travelminit.ro hotel platform.

After a period with countless challenges for domestic tourism, in which travel has been marked by restrictions and prohibitions, Romanians now want to take full advantage of their days off to take a well-deserved break. Travel is still in accordance with current regulations, but the booking trend for the December 1st mini-holiday remains on the rise compared to previous years, especially as tourists can still purchase accommodation packages and services with unused holiday vouchers from 2019 and 2020. .
