Romania’s tourism minister this week praised the Prince of Wales for supporting a campaign to protect Europe’s last remaining true wilderness, in the Carpathian Mountains, and for helping to attract visitors to the country.
After a meeting with the Prince at Clarence House, Elena Udrea described him as a “wonderful man” who was viewed as a hero in her country. “He has done more for Romania than most Romanians“, she said. “His enthusiasm for our country has been an inspiration“.
[…] Mrs Udrea said that the Prince had helped draw attention to one of Europe’s more unusual holiday spots and that his support chimed with her attempts to portray Romania as a “green” destination suitable for nature holidays.
“There is something unique about the Carpathians“, she said.
Mrs Udrea said that the Danube Delta was another treasured spot in Romania for nature and bird lovers.
Elsewhere in the country there were many fortified Saxon churches – in which Prince Charles takes a keen interest – ancient monasteries and atmospheric medieval towns such as Sibiu and Brasov.
“Most Britons have probably seen countries such as France, Spain and Italy, but Romania is something different“, she said.
“Here you will find a fusion of the past and the present; true wilderness – and a real chance of seeing a brown bear“.
