ALUSHTA, April 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimean resort city of Alushta expects to welcome more than one million vacationers in 2014, Mayor of Alushta Stalislav Kolot said.
“Last year, about one million people spent their vacations in Alushta. About 300,000 of them used organized accommodation facilities,” he said. “This year, according to our forecasts, the number of tourists will exceed one million.”
He pledged that the city authorities and the travel sector businesses would do their best to keep the prices at the last year’s level. “The city is ready to welcome guests on May holidays. Local health resorts and holiday centres are getting prepared for the summer season,” Kolot noted, adding that the current task for the city authorities was to extend the tourism season in the city. “We have been taking measures to extend the period of high season so that people come here not only in summer but also in winter,” he said.
“Alushta offers the entire spectrum of accommodations - from luxury hotels, park hotels to hostels. We offer options for extreme, business, youth tourism and children’s vacationing,” he said. “Now, we have a task to promote advertising across entire Russia to tell people about the advantages of spending vacations in Alushta. We welcome Russian tourists this summer and are ready to offer them comfortable and safe recreation.”
Today, Alushta has 87 health resorts capable of accommodating up to 24,000 people at a time.
