Increase in international visits in Stockholm during January 2016

Over 750 000 guest nights were recorded in the county of Stockholm, which is an increase of 1 percent. The foreign overnight stays increased by 7 percent during the same period.

- The international visitors continues to grow strongly in Stockholm. Last year Stockholm hosted the European Skating Championships which contributed to a record breaking start. It is therefore encouraging that we continue to increase in the number of guest nights, although we are not hosting an event like that this year, says Karin Mäntymäki, Acting CEO of Stockholm Visitors Board

Most international guests come from the UK, Norway, Germany and the United States. The largest increase in percentage came from outside Europe, an increase by a total of 22 percent.
