Bulgaria and Romania's accession to the EU is expected to generate a boom in tourism around Eastern Europe, especially on the Balkans, according to Travel Blackboard e-zine.
After the two countries joined the Union, experts envisage that 2007 the number of foreign tourists in Bulgaria will jump with 10%. Around 5.6 million tourists are expected to visit the country.
Bulgaria's EU membership has made it more popular as a travel destination. Even in 2006, when it was still not known whether the EU will approve country's accession, the tourist agencies registered record revenues, unseen before.
The small country on the Balkan Peninsula has the best offers for winter vacations with its ski resorts Bansko, Pamporovo and Borovets.
