Minister Nikolova: Again we rely on Bulgarian tourists for the winter season

Bulgaria will again rely on Bulgarian tourists for the winter season. This is what Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism Mariana Nikolova told Euronews, quoted by the press centre of the Ministry of Tourism.
“We rely again on our compatriots, as well as tourists from neighboring countries who can come by car,” Nikolova said in the interview. According to her, at the moment there is a 70 per cent drop in bookings and the financial losses are huge.

"Before the pandemic, revenues in the sector were growing at a high pace. In 2019 the revenues from winter tourism exceed one billion leva”, Nikolova also commented.
