Bulgarian politicians are surpassing when it comes to finding heartening words about the new summer season which has just started. In Sofia, Deputy Prime Minister Valeri Simeonov, one of Prime Minister Boiko Borissov’s ultra-nationalist coalition buddies, said “A safe is opening right in front of us”. He is correct.
He meant: Tourism in Bulgaria is blowing up! In 2016, a total of 8.2 million tourists from various foreign countries invaded this small Balkan country, a statistics that can easily get a place in the Guiness Book of World Records. They left a lot of money and it will continue the same this year.
Right at this moment, in Bulgaria’s main tourist resorts, more and more tourists are arriving from countries like Romania, Germany, Britain and Russia. They want to enjoy the sand, the salty water and all the thrilling action. And when they get tired of staring at their smart phones at the beach, they get hungry. Once their stomachs are full, they love to party. All of that costs money. Money, which contributes 13 percent to the economy of Bulgaria.
To quote the Minister of Tourism, Nikolina Angelkova, knows why all of those people are more and more selecting her country: “Bulgarian resorts are safe and preferred destinations.” Very true!
