Invasion of Swedish and Russian tourists in Salzburg

salzburgThe city of Salzburg experiences an invasion of Swedish and Russian tourists these days.

A reason might be the fact that Russia and Sweden are going to play their matches for the Football Euro 2008 in Salzburg.

There are also more tourists from Greece and Spain, who are also going to play in the city of Mozart, but the run of Swedish and Russian tourists is just tremendous.

Tourism experts are talking about an “explosive increase” of overnight stays from those two countries: 58% more Russians, and 60% more Swedes.

At the end of the year Salzburg wants to reach the border of two million overnight stays.
