Despite an inspired campaign by Sibiu’s supporters to achieve a Best City To Visit Championship first, Craiova’s solid victory marks another: Romania is the first country to ever win back to back tournament finals. Craiova was the second while Sibiu was the number one seed in the tournament and early on in the voting it seemed the 2013 champ was destined to bring me back for a return visit. Congratulations to Craiova and Dana, who originally nominated the city in Romania’s southwest back in February.
The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament 2015 Has Already Begun
I’ll be taking your contest opinions in an upcoming post later this week but it seems the controversies from this year’s tournament have already motivated a few cities from different parts of the globe to begin their campaigns for 2015. I have received emails from a few large organizations who are looking forward to challenging cities from Romania and beyond in about 10 months from now.

I’ll See You In Craiova
In the past due to my personal deficiency yet valuable travel asset of planning most trips last minute, I’ve visited winners of best city tournaments toward the end of the calendar year. This time however I’m aiming to break the pattern and visit Craiova during its warmer months. You can find my current travel plans on my upcoming stops page and I hope if you’re in Craiova that we can meet up while I’m there. I’ll organize something on my Facebook page and look forward to seeing Craiova and having drinks with its local supporters!
