Romania Promotes Tourism To Boost Economy

BRASOV, ROMANIA - MARCH 09: The trumpeter's tower of the former Council House, built in 1420, stands among houses in the historic district on March 9, 2013 in Brasov, Romania. Brasov, in German called Kronstadt, was founded by Teutonic Knights and heavily settled by German-speaking Saxon immigrants. Today the Saxon region of south-central Romania, with its fortified towns and churches, is a strong tourist attraction, though a majority of the Saxon descendants have emigrated since 1989. Both Romania and Bulgaria have been members of the European Union since 2007 and restrictions on their citizens' right to work within the EU are scheduled to end by the end of this year. However Germany's interior minister announced recently that he would veto the two countries' entry into the Schengen Agreement, which would not affect labour rights but would prevent passport-free travel.
