74% of the adult population of Bulgaria say that the winter tourism potential in the country is good, but only 12.8% state they are planning at least one tourist trip or holiday during the winter months. Almost 5% of the respondents state they intend to travel abroad, whatever the pandemic situation.

When planning their holiday 36% of the respondents say that what matters most are recommendations by family and friends, and 34% - that their choice depends on direct, personal impressions of the given location.
