As in the previous year, the engine behind the growth was increased foreign demand, especially from the Russian Federation. Nights spent by foreign tourists increased by 5.4%, while the number of nights spent by domestic tourists increased only slightly, by 0.2%. Finland received 7.6 million foreign visitors in 2012 – an increase of 5% on 2011.
