What is our perception of Romania? A social media survey! With @claudiumaxim
- Brought to you via nomadict.org / The 88% of you - those who participated in our latest country brand image survey - think that Romania is rich in history! This is the highest point of agreement reached on the survey. In addition, you strongly believe that Romania is home to many architectural treasures and unforgettable castles. After all, Romania has been strongly linked to Dracula’s Castle!
This was one of the major clichés used to describe the country. But apparently, Romania is moving away from such perception and other features seem to represent better its country’s image. Today, according to the 72% of you, “authentic, natural and cultural" are the words that best capture the essence of Romania.
The 80% of you are also aware of one of the main strengths of Romania as a tourist destination. Romania vies with Bulgaria as the cheapest destination in Europe. So, it is a pretty good deal for backpackers! A domestic beer in Romania, for instance, will cost you 6 lei, or 1.42 US dollars.
On the other hand, the 43% of you don’t think that “Romanians are among the friendliest and most hospitable people on earth.” This is not a negative perception per se. This simply indicates that for you there are other features that describe better Romania as a country.
Furthermore, the 41% of you don’t think that Romania is a safe destination. But this perception is not in line with the facts, since Romania is among the safest and peacefullest countries in the world! Vision for Humanity - a guide to global peace and development - says that Romania ranks 24th when it comes to “safety” among the 163 countries studied. In this regard, Romania performs better than countries such as Unites States, Spain, France or Italy for instance! Did you know that? 🙂 You can find the entire results visiting the link in the Bio!
