The European Tourism Indicators System (ETIS) for sustainable destination management is a product of the European Union's Sustainable Development Strategy, which has been formulated with the aim of promoting economic prosperity, social equity, cohesion and environmental protection. The purpose of this paper is to present an analysis of the application of this system of indicators in the case of the Romanian tourist destination Sibiu County, identifying the difficulties and challenges of ETIS implementation and emerging opportunities. We believe that the results of this analysis can provide useful guidelines and suggestions for those who manage this tourist destination, as well as for other tourist destinations who will want to implement the ETIS toolkit or other similar methodologies.
