Tourist visits during the May Day holidays

Ljubljana, Piran and Bled recorded good visitor numbers over the May Day holiday, while in Maribor numbers were slightly down on last year.

Between 1 and 3 May Ljubljana registered a total of 4,686 overnight stays by domestic and foreign guests, which is 12% up on last year, when the number was 4,181. There is satisfaction at these figures in Ljubljana because, along with Easter, the May Day holiday is the first time this year that a growth in the number of overnight stays has been recorded.

Between 25 April and 2 May the municipality of Piran registered 34,003 overnight stays by hotel guests, of which 42% were domestic and 58% foreign. This is an increase of 1% on last year. Italian guests predominated, followed by Austrians and Germans. The tourist information offices in Portorož and Piran mainly handled enquiries relating to sights and trips in the surrounding area, gastronomy (famous restaurants, traditional inns, farm tourism) and accommodation. There was also a large number of day visitors (mainly from Slovenia), who were mostly interested in information about cycling trails and footpaths. Last weekend, between 30 April and 2 May, there were 15,275 overnight stays by hotel guests, of which 34% were domestic and 66% foreign. The number of overnight stays was up by 6% on last year, and by as much as 19% on Friday 1 May.

In Bled the same number of overnight stays as last year was recorded during the May Day holiday (from 1 to 3 May). Guests from Italy predominated (almost 50%), followed by Slovenes, Croats and Hungarians. During the May Day holiday Bled was also visited by a large group from Malta who arrived in Slovenia for Easter via charter flight. More American guests than expected came to Bled at the last minute – their arrival was confirmed just before the holidays.

In the Maribor Pohorje tourist destination an overnight accommodation occupancy rate of approximately 30% was recorded during the May Day holiday, which is roughly 5% less than in the same period last year. Among the tourists who stayed overnight in Maribor and the Maribor Pohorje, foreign guests outnumbered domestic guests in a ratio of 80:20. Guests from Germany, Italy and Austria predominated, followed by guests from Croatia and Hungary.
