Outbound tourism was up 15% for the first half,

compared to January-June of last year. Despite Covid travel barriers, 5.7 million Ukrainians traveled abroad – four times the number of foreigners who visited Ukraine. The top two destinations were nearly even: Turkey – 774,000 and Egypt 705,000. More Ukrainians flew to the Dominican Republic – 35,000 – than to Bulgaria. The same number of Ukrainians flew to the Maldives – 10,000 – as to France, reports the State Tourism Development Agency.
