The given graph illustrates the number of overseas travellers who visited three different attractions in a European country from 1987 to 2007. It is noticeable that the number of tourists visiting all the areas witnessed an upward trend over the given period.
In 1987, the coast attracted the most overseas visitors, with 40 thousand while the converse held true for the lakes, with only 10 thousand. Over the next two decades, the number of overseas tourists opting for the lakes rose gradually to approximately 35 thousand. Similarly, there was a dramatic jump in the number of visitors to the lakes to about 75 thousand, followed by a drop to 50 thousand in 2007.
At the beginning of the period, 20 thousand tourists from other countries visited the mountains. The mentioned attractions welcomed 30 thousand visitors in 1997 and the figure remained relatively stable until 2002. At the end of the period, the number of tourists to the mountains reached the highest point of 35 thousand.
