Record number of tourists at Calimanesti-Caciulata
„Altthough this is a year of crisis, it is paradoxically that we had the biggest number of tourists ever registered. The tourism operators and the hotel and pension owners said that this is the beginning of an economic development of the said resort in future.
The investment made so far and which are going to be made will bring to the local economy and implicitly to the county what we were expecting for long,” mayor Amuzan also said.
According to him, Calimanesti-Caciulata currently has running investment of some 20 million euros. So, the center of conventions and exhibitions at Seaca, with all its utilities, nears nine million euros.
„Mirajul Oltului”, a spa center, including the landscaping of the storage lakes at Turnu and Calimanesti into navigation areas of cruise type, reaches over eight million euros, and the two tourist information centers at Calimanesti and Caciulata exceed 500,000 euros.
„All this investment are for that matter the foundation stones that will make of Calimanesti a pearl of the Olt Valley, better known that Sinaia of the Prahova Valley. And not only a tourist center, but also a medical one, as we have a spa tradition, plus the future clinic of heart surgery,” said Ilie Amuzan.
