BELGRADE - People around the world increasingly want to travel and visit new destinations, which is our chance for development of tourism, Belgrade Mayor Zoran Radojicic said Monday, adding that the Serbian capital was keeping up with a global 5 pct rise in the number of tourists and developing its tourism supply and the quality of service.

Speaking at an Adria Media Group conference on Serbian tourism, Radojicic said tourism was definitely one of Belgrade's most significant industries.

He said around 1.1 mln people had visited Belgrade in 2018 and that there had been around 2.4 mln overnight stays, mostly thanks to tourists from China, Turkey, Russia and the region.

Belgrade is seeing more and more tourists from Western Europe, which is also important, he said.
