Travel boom of the Russians in Bulgaria

The Russians took the 3rd place in number of the tourists in Bulgaria during the first 6 months of 2011. More than 70% of the Russians were the tourists (123 thousand people). It’s remarkable that the majority of the tourists go to the country buying last minute tours.

The season of mass tourism to Bulgaria was opened in June as usual. According to the Statistics Bureau of Bulgaria, almost 83 thousand tourists visited the country in June (+15.4% in comparison with June 2010). So the Russians took the 3rd place with the share of 13.2% ceding only to the Greeks (19.7%) and the Romanians (14.7%).

According to the results of the first 6 months of 2011, 175 thousand Russians visited Bulgaria. Just to note, the experts estimate that Bulgaria can become one of the most unprofitable destinations of the season.
