Rural tourism and agritourism is both a result and a premise of the rural economy development in the mountainous zone of Bacau county, as it is under-privileged is acquiring a cost effective agriculture. These two activities can fully contribute to reaching an equilibrium in the development of the analysed zone. Thus, we have in view the following: the possibility of becoming a support for new businesses and new jobs; encouragement of local traditional activities, especially handcrafting, but also those which can determine the development of specific commerce and creation new jobs; increase of the income of the inhabitants of the rural localities which can result form the selling local resources and ecological agro food products for tourist consumption. The practice of agritourism in each administrative unit from the mountainous zone of Bacau county is possible in 2-6 pensions; their income gained by renting apartments and selling natural resources or involving tourists in agricultural or domestic activities can substantially contribute at increasing the civilization and living standard and fixation of the youth in rural localities. We consider that there must be given a certain importance to the promotion of the tourist rural product which need: the publication of some information bulletins, setting up a magazine in this field, setting up an office for information and spreading the tourist information.
