Estonia’s tourism increased by 70% in February


About 170,000 visitors were accommodated in Estonian establishments in February this year, marking a total 70 per cent increase compared to the figures of the same period one year earlier.

As per the reports, authorities in Estonia have emphasized that there was marked a notable rise in both the number of domestic tourists and international tourists during February.


According to the analyst at Statistics Estonia, Helga Laurmaa, 60,000 international tourists and 110,000 domestic tourists were accommodated in Estonian establishments in the second month of this year.

The same source shows that the number of international tourists was four times bigger than February last year’s figures but still about two times lower than February 2019 figures.

“The number of foreign tourists was comparable to February 2009, when the Estonian hotel industry suffered from the recession. On the other hand, there were 26 per cent more domestic tourists, and their number increased slightly even compared to February 2019,” Laurmaa pointed out.

A total of 69 per cent of domestic tourists traveled for holiday purposes, while 22 per cent accounted for business trips.

In February, as of 919, accommodation establishments were open for visitors in this Baltic State. This means that 31 more establishments were available for tourists than February 2021 figures.

Previously authorities in Estonia eased their restrictions imposed to halt the virus’ further spread, which also helped the country’s industries recover from the damages caused by the virus, especially the travel and tourism industry.


Recently, a local media report revealed that Estonia’s Tallinn airport welcomed 172,422 travellers in March, marking a five-fold increase on year and reaching 75 per cent of pre-pandemic levels.
