March 1, Tallinn City Tourist Office & Convention Bureau has launched its ninth language version of the Tallinn Tourism Portal.
French tourism has been on the rise every year since 2005. As of 2010, it is now in ninth place for all foreign markets.
The French market has shown one of the fastest growth rates of any country in Europe. A European Cities Marketing Survey in 2009, demonstrated that France holds second place as a country of origin for city tourism in Europe, with an average annual growth rate of 5 per cent.
Furthermore, French tourists tend to spend longer periods of time at a destination and are more likely to be interested in the culture and history of the city.
Due to this consistent growth and enormous potential, Tallinn City Tourist Office & Convention Bureau has decided to launch a French language page. Prior to this, tourism information in French was available in brochures “Une escapade en ville (City break) and “Carte de la ville” (City map).
Take a look at the Tallinn's Tourism Portal in French here.
