71% of those who have spent the night in Bulgarian hotels since the beginning of the year are Bulgarian citizens, according to the Unified Tourist Information System, which tracks 18,000 sites across the country. There have been over 3.8 million tourists with at least one night's stay in Bulgaria - 2.7 million of them are Bulgarians and over 1 million foreigners.

The Ministry of Tourism is starting to publish the current statistics on visits to popular cities and resorts, as well as the nationality and age of the people who have chosen to spend their holidays in Bulgaria. Thus, each business related to accommodation and additional activities will be able to see the profile of customers in different seasons and their preferred domestic destination, gender, age and nationality.
