Travel and Tourism - Estonia - February 2015

“One of the reasons for the increase in domestic tourism, according to data from the Estonian Institute of Economic Research, is because Estonians are finally starting to feel more confident about their country’s economy, after all the financial challenges of the past few years. Although the Eurozone’s woes are far from over, pent-up demand has also played into travellers’ decisions about whether or not to take a trip – at home or overseas.” 

This report looks at the following areas:

  • Why is the winter season in Estonia becoming more popular?
  • How could Tallinn’s modest prices for hotel accommodation and food help to boost tourism?
  • In spite of the fall in the Rouble, why might Estonia see an increase in the number of Russian tourists in 2015?
  • How could Estonia increase the length of stay of foreign visitors?
