Bulgarians spent 50M euro in Greece during six-day holiday – report

Bulgarian tourists spent about 50 million euro in Greece during the special public holiday from May 1 to 6 2014, media reports said, quoting travel agencies.

According to Bulgarian Border Police estimates, about 260 000 Bulgarians crossed the Greek border, opting to holiday in the neighbouring country and eschewing their country’s Black Sea resorts, which saw relatively low occupancy.

Bulgaria had a special public holiday linking the six days between Labour Day and St George’s Day, with the missed working days to be compensated for by the declaration of May 10 and 31, both Saturdays, as working days.
