”The Ministry of Tourism is the only specialized institution of the Romanian central public administration, part of the Romanian Government, in charge of managing the tourism strategy and programs according to the market economy requirements, stimulating the initiative of the economic operators in their field of competence. One of the most important roles of the Ministry is to promote Romania as a tourist destination on the international markets.
Romania is the ideal destination for tourists who want to discover ‘untraveled paths’, unspoiled nature, authentic culture and ancient traditions. The Saxon Churches and castles from Transylvania (old historical region that covers the Central and the North Western part of Romania), the wooden churches from Maramureş District, the painted monasteries of Bucovina (old historical region in the Northern Romania) or the old Dacian strongholds from Orăştie Mountains (Central part of Romania) are all surrounded by an untouched suggestive nature sprinkled with wooded mountain peaks, steep gorges and valleys, foamy rapids. Everywhere in Romania, nature is an amazing traveling companion.
Active and adventure tourism, cultural tours, rural, city breaks, spa, both for health treatment and wellness are amongst the most interesting tourist products that Romania offers. Romania holds a third of the Europe’s thermal springs scattered across its territory and takes pride in being the home of the largest spa center in Europe. The main features that give Romania a fantastic position as a tourist destination are: nature, unspoiled areas in the Carpathian Mountains and the Danube Delta, the unique cultural heritage, with many sites under UNESCO protection, the authentic way of life and culture.
By keeping unchanged the ancient traditions and ways of life, the cultural and natural heritage, Romania will benefit from the growing trend of tourists returning to nature, of tourists in search of special experiences, who choose holidays in which culture, art, history, spirituality and education play an important role.
We are also having a rich jewish tradition with synagogues in Bucharest, Cluj, Iași, Sighetu Marmației. Romania is the birth place of Peace Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, Romanian-born American Jewish writer, professor, political activist, and Holocaust survivor. His house can be visited in Sighetu Marmației. Romanian Jews represent 10% of the population of Israel. The first version of Israel national anthem was written in Iași, Romania, in 1877.
In 2018 Romania celebrates 100 years as a modern state, under the slogan “Celebrate Together”! We invite everyone to join countless events that will take place all over the country aimed at showcasing Romania as an interesting tourist destination, its friendly people and unique and beautiful attractions.”

In 1940, to escape Nazi persecution, a large number of Jewish refugees fled from Poland to Lithuania and sought exit visas from the Japanese consulate there, just prior to its closure.
Torn between his duty as a diplomat and the proper regulation of issuing transit visas, and wanting to help these people fleeing for their lives, the Japanese consul there decided to issue a large amount of visas to the Jewish refugees, believing it right to want to help save human lives.
That Japanese man was Mr. Chiune Sugihara.
Traveling the routes connected to the heart of Chiune Sugihara.
We are an organization consisting of six municipalities, including ’ Yaotsu-Town, Takayama City, and Shirakawa-go, also Nagoya City, Kanazawa City, and Tsuruga City to promote tourist routes in conjunction with Chubu District Transport Bureau. This seminar is designed to appeal to a wide audience of travelers and explain the many attractions and sightseeing spots related to Chiune Sugihara, and to convey the achievements of this remarkable man.
Today, there is no user monitoring system available for travel sites and attractions, neither in real time or after the fact. The absence of such a tool prevents the site manager from making informed decisions based on the actual facts on the ground. This often leads to management of the site and its visitors based on gut instinct alone and using information that is not current. This outdated management method can lead to unnecessary expenses and even failure to actualize the inherent potential of the site.
The WishTrip Enterprise system is a comprehensive management toolbox that enables managers operating every type of travel site, of any size and with any scope of activity, to view the most dynamic data available. This information includes statistical segmentation, density maps and demand, as well as direct and indirect channels of communication with the end users.
These management tools become available thanks to the pleasant and simple end user interface that encourages usage.
This lecture shall provide a taste of WishTrip Enterprise’s advanced management tools and its diverse possibilities.

The architect Adolf Loos (1870 Brno, Austria-Hungary - 1933 Kalksburg, Vienna, Austria) belongs among world-recognized architects. He is considered to be one of the co-founders of the world modern architecture. His clientele in Pilsen (the Czech Republic) consisted mostly of successful Jewish entrepreneurs for whom he designed at least 13 apartment interiors, eight of which have been preserved until the present day. Two of his close disciples were Paul Engelmann and Yehuda K. Unger with whom he designed a few interiors also in Pilsen, and who both later settled in Israel. Based on the opinion of experts, this collection of his work is a priceless piece within the context of entire world architecture.
Four of the preserved interiors are newly reconstructed and form the basis of three guided tours opened for public which are under the authority of the allowance organisation Pilsen-TOURISM.
