Rural tourism owners nervous about outlook


Occupancy down 50% for countryside tourism in Lithuania

The golden age is gone and will never return, complain the crisis-hit owners of Lithuania’s rural tourism homesteads, according to Respublika. In order to survive, they will have to act quickly and adapt themselves to their clients’ changing needs. There are around 700 places offering countryside tourism in Lithuania and average occupancy has gone down by 50 percent. Around half are members of the Lithuanian Countryside Tourism Association. No one can forecast whether they will survive the current crisis, but experts urge that they wait at least until summer before making decisions on their future, claiming that many cash-strapped Lithuanians may prefer the pleasures of a local holiday to a foreign resort this year.
