Abstract

The paper presents the framing of Maramures County in the northwestern region of Romania and at the country level, the issues of relief, climate, hydrographic network and turistic potential. Based on these considerations we analyzed the number of hostels, accommodation structures existing and the number of Romanian and foreign tourists in the reviewed period 2012-2016 and concluded with a SWOT analysis of Maramures County. The purpose of this paper is to determine the opportunity of building or upgrading the agrotouristic pensions in the northwestern region of Romania, namely in Maramures County.
