The present study aims at identifying the interest of inhabitants of Bucharest in being tourists in their own city. For this purpose, an online research was carried out between 12 and 24 November 2020. The data was collected from 123 participants through a self-administered online questionnaire. The main idea that the study brings to the fore is the concept of staycation, a form of vacation near the area of residence. Such a holiday proves useful and popular in times of crisis for tourism. The research showed that there are some differences between inhabitants born in Bucharest and those from other places, as well as between women and men, in terms of tourist interest in the city of residence. The main limitation of this study is that the sample was too small and not representative, but nevertheless, some interesting results were obtained. These results could be used, for example, to promote domestic tourism.
