From January to May 2020, the number of tourists that visited Serbia dropped 52.8 percent compared to the same period last year, the country’s Tourist Organisation (TOS) said on Wednesday, the Beta news agency reported.

Local tourists’ number was less for 48.9 percent, while 57.7 percent fewer foreigners came to Serbia in that period.

TOS attributed the fall in visits to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, recalling the state of emergency in Serbia that lasted from March 15 to May 6, and that many anti-pandemic measures regarding travels were still in place in the world.

The Organisation added that some higher number of local tourists travelled across Serbia in June.
