She added that they ended the year 2019 in the region with a year-on-year increase in the number accommodated visitors by 16 percent compared to 2018. On this According to her, the summer credit has the greatest credit for the favorable result period.

During all summer months, the Tatra people record an increase in the number compared to the same observed month of 2018 by more than 20 percent. From this point of view, the most successful month last year was September with a record increase of up to 25.14 percent. Overall last year it increased the number of accommodated visitors compared to the previous year by almost 600,000.

“In the winter months, we have seen a slight increase in numbers accommodated visitors compared to the winter of 2018, by only two percent. In the spring and autumn off-season, increases of about 12 percent were recorded. It is also gratifying that the revenues of travel agents have also increased tourism for accommodation, by up to 21 percent, which also indicates an increase interest in the so-called more expensive accommodation in hotel facilities of higher price categories, “Blašková explained, adding that they are a separate chapter one-day visitors to the Tatra region. They visited the area according to preliminary calculations, mainly due to the flight, almost 3.9 million.

According to the OOCR director, the composition of the accommodated guests is several years stable, predominantly domestic tourists, followed by Czechs, Poles, Hungarians, Germans and Ukrainians. “We have recorded the Slovaks so far last year historically highest year-on-year increase, up to 20 percent. Overall the increase in foreign visitors was at the level of about 10 percent. Our region was especially popular with the Hungarians, where we noticed an increase of 17 percent, for Czech tourists it was 13 percent. Vice versa, the decrease was in visitors from Austria or Israel, “she specified Blašková.

According to her, the significant increase in domestic guests is related to the introduction holiday vouchers. However, the Director of the OOCR also noted that in this case The solution is partly a threat. “After the end of the subsidy from the state tourism can decline significantly from day to day. It is also related to this call for a conceptual solution. Slovakia needs systemic promotion not only in our neighbors, but also in new markets with growth potential, “ Blašková stated.

According to her, Slovakia lacks a state, professionally managed organization dealing with tourism, which would cover such activities and created a positive image of the country.
