MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) —— Bulgaria hopes to host more than 500,000 Russian tourists before the yearend, Bulgaria’s consul Angel Georgiev said on Wednesday.
“As of now, Bulgaria’s embassy in Moscow has issued about 400,000 entry visas,” he said.” We hope the number of visas will reach 440,000 by the end of the year and the number of Russian tourists will exceed 500,000. This will be by 30 percent more than last year.”
The diplomat said he hoped that the “successful summer season will be followed by a likewise successful winter.” Bulgaria, in his words, pins hopes on a tourism exhibition entitled Ski Season that will be held in Moscow on November 2 through November 4.
“Within the framework of the exhibition, the Russian Association of Travel Operators and the Bulgarian embassy’s service for trade and economic issues jointly with the Bulgarian ministry of economy, energy and tourism will stage a contest among Russian tourism managers on the topic “Bulgaria – An Unforgettable Adventure.” The winners will receive a prize – a week’s vacation at Bulgaria’s ski resort Borovets,” he said.
