BELGRADE BREAKS THE RECORD FOR THE NUMBER OF TOURISTS
Foreign tourists in Belgrade spent twice as many overnight stays in January this year than in the same month last year.
Aleksandra Mikata, from the Belgrade Tourism Organization, told Tanjug that more than 70,000 tourists visited the Serbian capital in January 2023 and over 200,000 overnight stays were recorded, which is 52% more than in 2022.
Mikata expects that last year’s attendance records in Belgrade will be broken during the spring trips.
“There we expect a record, because January has already shown an increase compared to the previous January, and last year was great, and be sure that everything will be full, and you need to book accommodation in time,” said Mikata.
She added that the increase in the number of tourists is due in part to the opening of new flights to and from Belgrade, as 20 new destinations are now on offer.
“About 5,000 units of private accommodation were categorized during the corona and now there is accommodation in Belgrade for everyone’s pocket,” Mikata pointed out.
