Thousands of Romanians intend to spend the Easter holidays in Bulgaria, where a two-night, all-inclusive package could cost as little as EUR 30, a representative of the national tourist agency association, ANAT, told media, reported Friday.

Until now, a total of 80 000 Romanians have bought Easter tourist packages, 30 000 of them for vacations abroad, Traian BДѓdulescu, spokesperson of ANAT announced. As a comparison, last year 35 000 Romanians spend the Easter holidays abroad and 80 000 headed to domestic resorts.
