Prague visited by more Russians, less Brits

01-09-2008

The structure of foreign tourists visiting Prague has changed over the past four years. While in 2004, the Czech capital was mostly visited by British tourists, it is now becoming increasingly popular among Russians. The number of Russian tourists has gradually been increasing, and last year their number reached 200,000. The overall number of tourists coming to Prague has risen by more than 600,000 since 2004. This year’s tourist season, however, saw a significant drop in the number of visitors.
