The Bulgarian Black Sea resort Albena has had 10% more tourists in the summer of 2010, in comparison to last year. The commercial director of Albena, Margita Todorova, has announced that this year the number of Rusian tourists has increased by 42% and of Germans by 17%. Since the beginning of the season, more than 6000 Bulgarians have chosen to have their vacation in Albena, which is an increase by 18%, year-on-year. The guests from Poland came back this summer. The holding has started to actively work with Polish tour operators, in order to increase the number of tourists from this country in 2011, Todorova said. She added that the resort will celebrate with a big concert its 41st birthday on August 20. In her words, the prices of services will be decreased. From August 30, an accommodation in 3 star hotels in the park zone will cost BGN 41 per person, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. The prices will be more expensive in hotels that are closer to the beach. From next summer, the holding has suggested that every guest, who is staying for at least seven days, should be able to choose one lunch and one dinner in different restaurants. The choice would be among seven restaurants that offer different cuisine.
