The Voice of Cultural Heritage in Europe

Through a very dear friend, I ran across this website today, Europa Noastra
and was mesmerized by the beauty, by the culture and by the vision and mission statement of this organization …                                I am in! Are you?
All this info below is from their website
  • EUROPA NOSTRA represents a rapidly growing citizens’ movement for the safeguarding of Europe’s cultural and natural heritage. Our pan-European network is composed of 250 member organisations (heritage associations and foundations with a combined membership of more than 5 million people), 150 associated organisations (governmental bodies, local authorities and corporations) and also 1500 individual members who directly support our mission.                                          Together,

    we form an important lobby for cultural heritage in Europe;

    we celebrate excellence through the European Heritage Awards organised by Europa Nostra in partnership with the European Union; and we campaign to save Europe’s endangered historic monuments, sites and cultural landscapes.

  • We are the Voice of Cultural Heritage in Europe.

We love Romania

I came across two cool things on the web today…

One, is this video , called ‘we are HAPPY in BUCHAREST Romania’,, that is just so upbeat and makes me want to jump and dance…

Two, is this cool Travel Site that offers tours in many beautiful places, including Romania which is a must see…

Also, while there make sure you stay at The Country Hotel near Brasov in Transylvania, Romania.

Romania will conduct advertising campaigns worth EUR 25 m. in 2014 and 2015

I am doing what I can with our ‘Discovery Bug’ to bring awareness to Romania and what it offers as an international tourism destination …and I was pleased to read this article today in–in-2014-and-2015-32250
This is the part of the article that talks about Romania:
“Razvan Filipescu, the president of the National Tourism Authority, declared that during 2014 and 2015, the campaign promoting Romania as an international tourism destination will include outdoor, tv and written media worth EUR 25 m.
NTA organizes currently tenders worth EUR 18-19 m. for promoting Romanian tourism on tv stations and selected written media in the US, Germany, France, UK, Italy and Romania.”
