ABSTRACT
The tourism potential in the Romanian sector of the Danube is higher at its extremities (the gorge area and the Danube Delta), where the natural tourism potential is predominant, and it is lower in the rest of the territory, where the anthropic tourism potential is predominant (in port-cities). The capitalization of the tourist potential of the port-cities and the Danube Valley is generally modest at present. The tourist infrastructure is poorly represented in most cases, being old both physically and morally. What is even more important is that it is not adapted to the specificity of the area - the accommodation, the food and especially the leisure units hardly capitalize or, better said, fail to suggest the uniqueness of the area where they are located.
