Total tourist volume, including domestic and international tourists, fell from 34.9 million in 2010 to 32.5 million in 2011, mainly due to the global financial crisis, which resulted in job losses and reduced levels of consumer confidence. However, tourist volume grew in 2010 due to the country’s hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
