Another Good Winter Tourist Season Expected - Minister Angelkova

This year's winter tourism levels are expected to remain the same as last year's, when over 1.2 million foreign tourists visited Bulgaria, which is 4.5 per cent more than the previous year, Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova told BTA in an interview. 
According to central bank data, revenue from international tourism between last December and this March exceeds 827 million leva. This translates into a growth of close to five per cent compared to the previous season. Growth was observed in a number of important markets, such as FYROM (23 per cent), Turkey (over 13 per cent), Serbia (17 per cent), Britain (7 per cent), Israel (19 per cent), the Czech Republic (39 per cent), Hungary (34 per cent). 
Angelkova referred to information from the sector, according to which sales are going strong for the upcoming winter season, while there is an increased interest from Romania and Moldova. According to preliminary data about Plovdiv (South Bulgaria) Airport's winter schedule, tourists from Israel, Ireland, Russia and Britain have already shown interest in Bulgaria as a tourist destination.
