Interest in summer arrangements in Montenegro is higher than in previous years and booking is very good, so we expect a larger number of tourist arrivals this year. Our estimates amount to 1.5 million tourists and 10 million overnight stays, said in an interview with Secretary of Ministry of Defeat Sustainable Development and Tourism Zoran Tomic.
Tourists and travel agencies in past tourist fairs in Berlin, which is the largest in Europe, then Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Serbia showed great interest in visiting Montenegro this summer. I emphasize the Fair in Belgrade, where we have established new contacts, and agreed better airline connections and the number of packages for this summer. We have high expectations and from the fair in Moscow. Last year, there where over 234 000 tourists from Russia and this year is expected that that number increase to 250.000 .It’s also expected a large increase in arrivals from other countries from the European Union
Tomic emphasizes that Montenegro is the only destination that in times of economic crisis had a constant growth in tourist arrivals and the revenue generated from tourism.
“Last year Montenegro has earned about 700 million euros from tourism and the optimism for this year are based on the fact that Montenegro has been placed among the five fastest-growing destinations in the world and that income from tourism in the last few years of constant growth, last year of 3.5% .
