The number of foreign tourists who visited the Bulgarian winter resorts in January and February of 2008 has gone up 23,4% compared to the same months of 2007.

Bulgaria's total revenue from tourism in these months was EUR 97,8 M, which is 19% more than in the same period of 2007.

The news was announced by the Chair of the Bulgarian State Agency for Tourism Aneliya Krushkova on Wednesday. Krushkova presented data from a poll about the winter vacation in Bulgaria.

The poll results show that 78% of all foreign tourists, who visit Bulgaria, were ready to recommend it as a tourist destination.

Many of them, however, pointed out they wished that the Bulgarian winter resorts were quieter and more peaceful, and that the staff improved their English, and were more hospitable.

The number of Serbian and Macedonian tourists visiting Bulgaria in the winter continues to decrease.
