The number of arrivals of foreign tourists to Greece in the first eight months of this year increased by almost 80% compared to the same period in 2020.

According to the Central Bank of Greece, 8.6 million foreign tourists visited the country in January-August, including 4 million in August alone.

The greatest demand for visiting Greece was noted by citizens of Germany, France and the UK.
As a result, tourism revenues for the first eight months of the year increased by 135% to almost 6.6 billion euros.

But this figure is still far from the level of 2019, when about 21.8 million foreign travelers spent 13.2 billion euros in Greece.

Tourism is the driving force of the Greek economy, accounting for more than 20% of the country's GDP.
