ABSTRACT
Colibiţa Depression is located at the contact between the Bârgău and Călimani rock formations, overlapping the upper basin of the Bistriţa Ardeleană River. The area posses a significant tourist potential, exploited in the past by the existing climacteric resort. The hydroelectric development activities that took place between 1976 and 1996 deactivated the spa, but once they were finished, tourism experienced a powerful come-back. As a result, county institutions (namely the Bistriţa-Năsăud County Council) and local authorities (the mayoralty of Bistriţa Bârgăului commune) are interested in the revival of the Colibiţa climatic resort. This is already happening, through several specific activities and projects. Under these circumstances, our study tries to realise an evaluation of the region’s attractive potential, as well as an analysis of the criteria needed to be fulfilled in order to reestablish Colibiţa climatic resort.
