A great number of tourists from Serbia, Bulgaria and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) have flocked to northern Greece these past few days, crossing into Greece with coaches and private cars, Athens News Agency reports.

They took advantage of the three-day vacation period leading to the Holy Spirit religious holiday on Monday, May 28. The main bulk of the tourists headed to the shores of Pieria and Halkidiki.

A senior customs officer at the Serres border post told the ANA-MPA on Saturday that over the past two days, tourist arrivals from Bulgaria increased by more than 60 per cent compared to the previous weekend, while on Saturday, from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., sixty coaches with visitors from Serbia and FYROM passed from the Evzones customs post.
