Czechia’s income from tourism nearly doubled last year

Czechia’s income from tourism reached around CZK 118 billion, a year-on-year increase of roughly CZK 51 billion, the Czech News Agency reported on Thursday citing a press release by the state agency CzechTourism. While this is a significant increase, it is still well behind the CZK 167 billion that came in through tourism during the last pre-pandemic year of 2019.

Tourist income is calculated by adding the money foreign visitors to Czechia spend on housing, food or transport. Interestingly, Ukrainians spent the most in Czechia last year, more than a third of the overall income from tourism. They were followed by Germans and Poles.
