Revenues thanks to the tourist tax in Montenegro amount to 4, 4 million euros. There are currently 204,000 registered tourists in the country. The record data from last year was recorded on August 10 and at that time just over 196 thousand guests were registered. The best thing about the success of the season, however, is the fact that, as of August 1, Montenegro recorded over 4.4 million euros in tourist tax revenues, while last year about 3.6 million euros were earned on that basis, said the director of the National Tourism Organization (NTO) Željka Radak-Kukavičić.
She pointed out that as of August 1, Montenegro recorded this amount of income from the sojourn tax, while last year, by the same date, around EUR 3.6 million was received on that basis.
"I think this is the information that speaks best about the success of the tourist season and its course," said Radak Kukavicic, who, considering the arrangements, expects good occupancy this month. Željka Radak Kukavičić has been the executive director of the National Tourism Organization since 2014 and was re-elected to the post in 2018.
The NTO director recalled the latest Monstat data on hotel accommodation and similar types of accommodation for six months. These data show that in Montenegro there were more than 500 thousand guests in hotels alone, which generated about 1.5 million nights, and emphasized that about 73 percent of those guests stayed in 4 and 5-star hotels.
"The structure of guests coming to Montenegro is changing. In six months, most were guests from Germany, followed by Serbia, Russia, France, the United Kingdom," Radak-Kukavicic emphasized.
