Bulgarians Flock to Greece for Holidays

Thes_ChristmasWhile many Greeks visit Bulgaria to buy cheaper goods, many Bulgarians are returning the favor and traveling to Greece to spend Christmas and the holidays, Bulgaria media has reported.

BNP Bulgaria radio’s correspondent in Greece, Katia Peeva, quoting Greek travel agents, said this year’s top Christmas destinations for Bulgarians are Halkidiki and other Northern Greece’s regions, and visitors are expected to be more than previous year’s ones.

A really popular destination to Bulgarians seems to be, this year, Pieria, according the e-magazine “economy magazine.” Struggling Greek businesses and resort areas, where the number of Greek visitors have dropped dramatically because of the crushing economic crisis, are welcoming the Bulgarians.
