Increase of Russian and Ukrainian tourists in Carinthia

Austrias federal state of Carinthia is becoming more and more popular among Russian tourists. The increase last summer amounted 23 percent. In winter even 35 percent more Russians spent their holiday in Austrias most southern province.

The website of the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation also reports about huge increase of tourists from the Ukraine. 54,2 percent more tourists from Ukraine were counted last year.

The massive tourist inrush from Russia and Ukraine is no coincidence. Carinthia is doing a lot of advertising in those two countries. There are also many cooperations with Russian tourist agencies. Those agencies print travel brochures only about Austrias federal state Carinthia.

Carinthia wants to continue and to deepen the succesful relationship, and invited hundreds of new Russian travel operators in May.
