DESPITE popular belief, Spain does not have longer holidays than other countries.
That privilege goes to Russia, where workers average 40 rest days a year.
Spain does, however, figure amongst the top 10, with an annual total of 34 days – six over the average – found a survey by Hoteles.com.
The Spanish total consists of 22 days’ paid holidays, eight national holidays and the three or four days allowed by regional governments.
Italy and Sweden came second and third in the survey with 36 days apiece. Finland, France, Norway and Brazil also had more free time than Spain with 35 days each.
Least fortunate were Canada and Mexico, with just 15 days for Canada and 13 for Mexico.
