Tourism income up, tourists down

IN THE first 11 months of 2002, 24.8 million tourists crossed Slovak borders, a decline of 4.5 per cent from the year before, while foreign currency income from tourism jumped 23.2 per cent to Sk29.1 billion ($750 million).

Fewer tourists crossed the Polish, Czech, and Hungarian borders into Slovakia, but traffic was up over the Austrian and Ukraine borders and at Bratislava airport.
