“The entire Buzau region has a huge tourism potential, which nowadays is not capitalized in any way. (…) For me, Dealu Mare (The Big Hill) is like Toscana of Romania, maybe just a little bit dustier ,” said Juranda Zielinski.
The association plans to promote the area in collaboration with the local authorities. It is currently elaborating a tourism masterplan . An important feature will be the use of structural funds.
The Association Monteoru Renaissance wants to preserve the historical heritage of the area and to promote a sustainable development in tourism field, especially in the Subcarpathian Area from Buzau and Prahova.
