Romanians are preparing to descend on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast in force over the Easter holidays, Horemag.bg reported.
According to the report, about 10 000 Romanians will head south across the Danube to Bulgaria and Greece.
"These are destinations which are close to Romania and very attractive price-wise. Additionally, both Bulgaria and Romania are orthodox countries," Taian Badulescu, spokesperson of the national association of Romania tourist agencies, was quoted as saying by Horemag.
Inexpensive holiday packages mean that the most attractive holiday offers for "price and quality" are in Bulgaria.
Bulgarian hotels are offering three-day all inclusive packages starting at 77 euro, increasing to 200 euro in five-star hotels, the report says.
"The Bulgarians surprised us once again this year, offering 20 per cent discounts because they want to fill their hotels to capacity," Badulescu said.
Bulgarian resorts are also offering discount and bonus packages for children.
It is expected that about 100 000 Romanians will choose to stay in their own domestic resorts, where discount packages knocking 20 per cent off 2009 prices are attracting holidaymakers.
In Bran, famous for the Dracula castle, a three-day all inclusive stay is offered for 51 euro, while in Bucovina, a region split between northern Romania and parts of Ukraine, there are offers for up to 300 euro.
