Over 10,000 Romanians will spend their May 1 holiday abroad this year, 10 percent more than last year. Seaside resorts and city breaks are the most wanted destinations. Although most of the tourists choose Bulgaria or holidays below EUR 100, a new range of tourists have taken shape in the past years, meaning those who want to blend city breaks with the beach.
