Romania Promotes Tourism To Boost Economy

BRAN, ROMANIA - MARCH 10: Bran Castle, famous as "Dracula's Castle," stands among Transylvanian mountains on March 10, 2013 in Bran, Romania. Bran Castle's reputation as the supposed home to Dracula corresponds little with Bram Stoker's novel, nor did Vlad Tepes, the sadistic 15th-century Wallachian prince, ever live there. Nevetheless the castle retains the myth and tourists flock there in large numbers. Bran Castle, along with the mountainous region of southern Transylvania, which is home to Saxon fortified towns and churches, are among the asssets the Romanian government hopes will bring increasing numbers of tourists to the country. 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.
