Around half a million trips are expected to be taken at Christmas the New Year in Bulgaria. Approximately 60,000 will be trips outside of the country, mostly to neighbouring countries. Outbound passengers will travel to Europe to see friends and family, fewer will go to warmer climes,” Rumen Draganov from the National Tourism Board and the Institute for Analysis and Assessment in Tourism stated for Bloomberg TV Bulgaria.

The ski season will be twice as good as the previous season. Last year we had about 600,000 foreign tourists coming to the country, this year there will be 1.2 million, whereas in 2019 there were 1.67 million,” Draganov adds.
