‘ In the first seven months of the year the Bulgarian capital city Sofia has welcomed nearly 553,000 tourists, an increase of 8.6% compared to last year.’

This is what Bulgarian Minister of Tourism Nikolina Angelkova said speaking at the opening of the First Meeting of Mayors of the Central and Eastern European Countries and China 16+1, which was held at Sofia Tech Park in Sofia, the FOCUS News Agency reported.

She commented further that according to the data of the world tourism barometer, last year more than 144 million visits of foreign tourists had been registered in the countries included in the initiative.

The minister remarked that the revenues generated thanks to these visits amounted at about USD 162 billion.

‘Last year Sofia was visited by nearly 916,000 tourists, while the tourism sector generated revenues estimated at about BGN 116 million only from overnight stays.’

She commented further that the tourist maps, which would ease the tourists in finding the landmark sites in all regions, were already ready. 

The Bulgarian tourism minister added that the congress and festival forums had high added value for the capitals within the initiative, pointing out that this was an occasion to attract higher attention on behalf of the tourists.
