Minister Prodanov: We are expecting around 6 million tourists this summer

11 June 2022

In the upcoming summer season we expect between 5.5 million and 6 million tourists. Most visits will come from Poland, Hungary, Romania, Germany, the United Kingdom, Serbia, Czech Republic, Israel, etc. We expect no outflow of domestic tourists because many Bulgarians like the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. This is what the Minister of Tourism Hristo Prodanov said during a press conference in Golden Sands resort on the occasion of the official opening of the summer tourist season.

“We want to send a clear message that Bulgaria offers excellent conditions for holidays and at the same time is a safe destination - our Black Sea is a safe and calm zone and we have a long tradition of quality and hospitality in tourism,” Minister Prodanov said and added that he is optimistic about the upcoming summer season despite the crises in recent years.

He said that the promotion of all types of tourism must be a very high priority. Along with the traditional sea and winter tourism, it is extremely important for us to use the potential of cultural tourism, spa tourism, wine and culinary tourism, health tourism.

In the update of the budget, which is to be considered by the National Assembly, it is envisaged that the food vouchers will also be valid for workers to go on holidays, Minister Prodanov announced.

The summer tourist season was officially opened with a festive parade along the promenade of the Golden Sands resort. The event coincides with the 65th anniversary of the Black Sea resort.

At the invitation of Minister of Foreign Affairs Teodora Genchovska and Minister of Tourism Hristo Prodanov, more than 30 heads of diplomatic missions accredited in the Republic of Bulgaria are visiting the resort to become acquainted with the tourism potential of our country.

The two ministers and the representatives of the diplomatic corps in Bulgaria participate in conferences dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the establishment of the seaside resort and the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Union of Hotel Owners in Golden Sands.
