Bulgaria is expecting a record number of tourist visa applications from Russia for the summer of 2011, according to the Bulgarian Consulate in Moscow.

The Consulate also says it expects the summer season to begin earlier than usual - end of April or beginning of May.

Since January 2011, over 21,000 applications have been filed which is a 50% increase with respect to the same period in 2010 and a 100% increase with respect to 2009.

According to data of the Bulgarian Council in Moscow, the current 2011 is supposed to be the most beneficial for the summer tourism since the visa regime for Russian citizens was introduced.
