Ljubljana breaks the record for overnight stays

Wednesday, 20 August 2014

In the last couple of years Ljubljana has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. This trend is proved firstly by a constant increase in the number of tourists, visiting Ljubljana and secondly by that Ljubljana was named by the popular tourist guide publisher Lonely Planet as second of top ten destinations to visit in Europe.

In the first seven months of this year 522,000 overnight stays were noted in Ljubljana, which is a 3% increase, compared to the year 2013. If this trend will continue, the city will break the record of a million overnight stays in one year.

Due to the bad weather, the first two summer moths have not brought any radical increase in the number of tourists: overnight stays in June have dropped for 3% compared to the last year, and in July the index remained the same as in 2013. In spite of this fact Slovenian tourist industry is optimistic, as if we look at the number of overnight stays in Slovenia, only in June it has grown to 4%, compared to the last year. Foreign guests made 66% overnight stays in the country, among which are guests from Germany (16 %), Austria (13 %), Italy (10 %), Great Britain (6 %) and Russian Federation (5%). Foreign guests stay in Ljubljana for 1.8 days on average.

Such rapid development of tourism industry in Ljubljana is the result of the general development of the city. Not long ago it has obtained the title of the Green Capital of Europe, and a number of achitectural awards in previous years. The next step for the city will be the development of diverse offer of the quality hotels and other tourist facilities.
