Russian Tourists “invade” Spain

Tourism is a hugely important business for Spain, so the numbers of tourists coming in and out of the country, where they go, what they eat, what type of accommodation they choose, how they travel etc, are all analyzed in detail.

The British are still the biggest market by a long way, representing 24% of the total visitors, or 12.5 million people. The Germans are in second place with 8.4 million,  the French with 8 million, the Nordic countries 3.48 million, Italians 3.2 million and  Dutch 2.33 million.

Although the numbers are still very low, the Russians represent the biggest growth market for Spain, having increased by 41% year to date, to 1.12 million visitors.
