emerged as a popular tourist destination for many Europeans. Destinations such
as Mangalia, Saturn, Venus, Neptun, Olimp, Constanța and Mamaia (sometimes
called the Romanian Riviera) are among the most
popular attractions during summer. During
winter, the skiing resorts along the Valea Prahovei and Poiana Brașov are
popular with foreign visitors.For their medieval atmosphere and castles, Transylvanian
cities such as Sibiu,
Mureș or Miercurea Ciuc have become major tourist attractions
for foreigners. Rural tourism, focusing on folklore and traditions, has become
an important alternative recently, and is targeted to promote such sites as Bran
and its Dracula's
Castle. Other major natural attractions, such as the Danube
Delta, the Iron Gates (Danube Gorge), Scărișoara Cave and several
other caves in the Apuseni
