The Association of Czech Travel Agents says it expects visitors to the Czech Republic during the Christmas and New Year period to spend a round a fifth less than in the same period 12 months previously. The association’s Tomio Okamura says around 420,000 tourists are expected to visit the country, around the same number as last year. He said he expected a fall in spending because more eastern Europeans and fewer western tourists are coming to the Czech Republic than previously. The strength of the Czech crown is another factor.
