The purpose of this study is to make a short presentation of the Romanian tourism in the context of the global economic crisis, highlighting the main data about inbound and outbound tourism. Due to the current global crisis, Romanian tourism disposes of two main options: to ripen or to run low. The empirical results will show the connection between Romanian tourism and the global economic crisis and shall state precisely the decrease or increase for the indicators between 2000 and 2007. In 2007, the year when Romania joined the European Union and when all stipulations regarding free travelling for people who travel in other communitarian countries were passed, Romanian tourists increased their interest in travelling abroad. This also brought to an increased number of persons visiting other countries. The economic crisis might be a chance for Romanian tourism to raise the bid as in such periods tourists usually look for close destinations, developing the incoming indicator that was very low during the last few years. Romania’s international touristic feed is characterized by an evolution reflecting the various changes and transformations from the political, economic, and social points of view. The drawn conclusions prove the fact that both the global heating and the global financial crisis take place in the same time and thus we must take actions in order to improve Romanian tourism.
