Greece hosted fewer international travelers in 2012

International tourist arrivals were down 5.2 percent during the January-September 2012 period, compared to the same 9-month period last year, according to figures released by Greece’s statistical authority, ELSTAT, on Wednesday.

According to the agency’s report, the greatest losses (8.3 percent) were recorded in arrivals stemming from European Union countries.

Fewer visitors travelled to Greece from Poland, France, Belgium, Germany, Bulgaria, Italy and Holland, for instance, while there was an increase in tourist arrivals from Britain and Russia.

German tourists topped the list of visitors (13.1 percent), followed by British (12.6 percent) and French travelers (6.6 percent).

Meanwhile, a rise was recorded in arrivals from the United States and a number of Asian countries.
