It is expected that Bulgarian tourism would achieve better results this summer in comparison to the previous year. If the current pandemic situation in Bulgaria remained unchanged, then we could count on a better season continuing until the end of September, Ilin Dimitrov, chairman of the Varna Chamber of Tourism has told BNT.

Bulgarian tourists prefer the southern parts of the seaside. In the town of Primorsko, for example, hotels are fully occupied by mid-September. The resort is a preferred destination for families with children.

Romanians are the most numerous among foreign tourists in Bulgaria. There are also tourists from Czechia, Poland, Moldova, as well as young tourists from Germany, data collected until mid-July show.
