“Weekend holidays of Bulgarian citizens in no way can solve the problems of Bulgarian tourism this season. Neither in terms of currency revenues, nor in terms of the number of foreign citizens, nor in terms of increasing charter flights”, commented the last summer tourist season in Bulgaria the Chairman of the Regional Tourist Chamber in Burgas Ivan Ivanov.

“Sunny Beach resort suffered the most because of the redevelopment and the large complexes with many apartments.

The largest number of tourists arrived from Poland — over 30 thousand in August. This is the smallest decline.

The biggest drop was from English tourists — 93%, completely lost markets for August this year compared to last were from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, France, Sweden. Only on September 8 we found Bulgaria for Belarus.

651 thousand Bulgarian tourists for July and August who visited our sea. But the average stay was short,” Ivanov commented.

The tourism industry will ask that the 80/20 measure be extended until the next summer season.
