Summary/Abstract: Băile Olănești Resort, located in the Olănești Depression in the Eastern part of the Getic Subcarpathians, is one of the most important spa resorts in Romania. The construction and development of Băile Olănești has been favored by the natural and anthropogenic potential of a geographical unit located in the depression area at the foot of the Căpățânii Mountains. The rich and varied hydromineral potential contributed to the early development of the spa tourism in this resort, where other types of tourism (religious) appeared, which contributed to a highly favored touristic movement and the position and favorable access from large urban areas located at relatively small distances R. Vâlcea, Pitești, Sibiu and Bucharest). Although in recent decades the resort has modernized, attracting a significant number of tourists, it is worth noting the need for a more extensive and efficient promotion of the existing benefits and the promotion of an environmental protection strategy.
