Attractive to tourists, the Moravian-Silesian Region has increased visitor numbers by ten per cent

Visitors to the region also increased year-on-year during the main tourist season. Over 330 thousand visitors stayed at accommodation facilities in our region during the third quarter, which is 33 thousand more guests than in the same period last year. The visiting rate for the third quarter increased by 10% year-on-year. These numbers are from statistics published by the Czech Statistical Office.

“I am very pleased with these results! They are proof of our region’s changing image. The quality of our services here also continues to grow, just as the diversity of our available activities. Music festivals, sports events and NATO Days are regular events in this region, however TBEX Europe 2018, which was organised in cooperation with the Moravian Silesian Region, was a new event. This largest international gathering of internet content creators was attended by 500 bloggers, vloggers, photographers, reporters and other tourism sector professionals from all over the world,” said Deputy Governor for Regional Development and Tourism Jan Krkoška, adding that the Moravian Silesian Region would become even more visible thanks to a million contributions on social networks and in traditional media.

“Our visiting rate increased 5 per cent more than the national average. Visits to our region are becoming trendy, which is very positive for the growing prestige of our region and our economy. The benefits of tourism for the region in this aspect are indisputable, and I’m sure the forecasts for future periods are also positive,” said Deputy Governor Jan Krkoška.

A total of 68,931 foreign guests stayed in the region, which is a 10.3% increase. A total of 261,409 Czech visitors stayed in the region overnight, which is 11.3% more than in the same period last year. “Over half of all foreign guests were visitors from Poland, Slovakia and Germany. The number of US visitors increased significantly because of the international TBEX Europe 2018 conference. We exceeded two thousand visitors per quarter for the first time, and the United States of America achieved sixth place on a country of origin scale for tourists visiting the Moravian Silesian Region in the third quarter of this year,” added Deputy Governor Jan Krkoška.

A total of 788,832 visitors travelled to and stayed in accommodation in the Moravian Silesian Region during the first three quarters of 2018. This is an increase of 10.6% compared to 2017, when 713,843 visitors came to the region. 

“We achieved another wonderful figure—one million! The number of overnight stays of guests at accommodation facilities in the region exceeded this number. To be exact, the number was 1,007,369 overnight stays during the period July to September. This is approximately 84 thousand more overnight stays than last year, which means an increase of over nine per cent,” said Deputy Governor Jan Krkoška.

The majority of accommodated guests during the third quarter stayed in the Beskid-Wallachia tourist region (113,362), where visitors also spent the most nights.
