the Czech Republic (+6.7%), and Italy (+1.5%) increased compared with
the same period of the previous winter season, but there was a decline
in overnight stays by Russian (-8.2%) and Polish (-4.0%) guests.

groth in overnight stays, the number of nights spent in private accommodation
establishments declined (-3.7%).
January 2019: 2.1% less overnight stays
In January 2019, the number of nights spent decreased
by 2.1% to 15.10 million. This negative result was caused by resident
(-2.4% to 2.79 million) as well as non-resident (-2.0% to 12.31 million)
tourists. The decline in overnight stays by guests from Germany (-3.9%
to 6.42 million) and the Netherlands (-3.6% to 1.13 million) was the main
reason of the decrease in January 2019 compared to January 2018.
