Macedonians Vacation at Home... 20% increase

Ever more Macedonian citizens have started to discover their own country. The number of Macedonian tourists marked a growth of 20 percent this year, above all because of campaigns such as "Discover Macedonia", but also due to the crisis because it’s cheaper for people to vacation at home, said Zoran Nikolovski, the head of the Economy Ministry’s Tourism Sector.

According to Macedonia’s media, an increase in the number of Macedonian tourists who vacation at home is expected this year because of the crisis.
Moreover, according to the latest data by Macedonia’s State Statistical Office, the number of tourists in May went up 0.8 percent in comparison to May 2009, while the number of overnights went up 13.8 percent.
