29. December 2009

Tallinn can expect even more tourists from Russia for New Year's than last year.

During last New Year's, 10,000 Russian tourists were thought to be coming to Estonia: a full 15,000 actually came. Association of Hotels executive director Feliks Magus said that, for example, 85 percent of rooms are already reserved in the Olumpia and Meriton Hotels. Although for example French, Germans and Italians also come to Tallinn for the New Year, most of hotel guests are nevertheless from Russia.
