The prize for the High Tatras as the most interesting summer European destination in 2019, awarded by the travel website Lonely Planet, has probably borne fruit.
The visitor rate for the summer season in the High Tatras showed a healthy increase from the 2018 figures, according to the director of the Regional Organisation of Tourism Region High Tatras Lucia Blašková.
Last summer marked an 8-percent growth in the number of accommodated visitors in the Tatras in comparison with the previous year, equating to about 115,000 visitors.
“The presentation of the Tatras as Best in Europe by the Lonely Planet gave us recognition at an international level,” said Blašková, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “References by visitors who have discovered the Tatras, such as the Arsenal football team from London, have contributed to their popularity.”
