Drop in tourism continues

On October 15, the Nový čas daily warned that the number of tourists coming to Bratislava is continuing to decline.

The city has renovated its centre, but lacks the promotional drive to attract tourists rather than businessmen who stay for only a day or two, according to the daily.

"The bumper years of 2004-2006 (for tourists) were followed by a fall in interest in Bratislava," Bratislava Hotel Association (BHA) manager Igor Kuhn is quoted as saying.
