Figures to the end of May: arrivals up 4% and 2% more overnight stays than last year

In the first five months of this year we recorded 4% amore tourist arrivals than last year, while the total number of overnight stays grew by 2%. In May 2010 tourist arrivals in tourist accommodation establishments were up by 1% compared to May 2009, while the number of overnight stays by tourists was the same as in May last year.


According to provisional figures from national statistics office SURS, almost a million arrivals (919,025) and over two and a half million overnight stays (2,690,262) by tourists had been recorded in tourist accommodation establishments in Slovenia by the end of May 2010. Figures for arrivals and overnight stays in the first three months thus maintain a positive balance for Slovenian tourism which, following the crisis year of 2009, is a cause for optimism before this year`s summer tourist season.
In May 2010 almost 226,000 tourist arrivals were recorded in tourist accommodation establishments (provisional SURS figures), which is 1% more than in the same period last year. Arrivals of foreign tourists were up 1% on one year ago. Tourists generated almost 610,000 overnight stays, which is the same as in May last year (domestic tourists generated 3% fewer overnight stays, while the number of overnight stays by foreign tourists increased by 2%).

Foreign visitors accounted for 60% of overnight stays by tourists in May 2010. The largest number of overnight stays well by tourists from Austria (17%), Italy (16%) and Germany (16%). These were followed by tourists from the United Kingdom (5%), the Netherlands (4%) and the Russian Federation (4%). Tourists from Japan contributed 2% of all overnight stays by foreign tourists. The positive effects of the liberalisation of the visa regime for the countries of the former Yugoslavia are still apparent, with Slovenia receiving significantly more visitors from these countries in May compared to the same period last year (Serbia +81%, Macedonia +120%, Montenegro +25%).
