TBILISI, November 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The number of Russian tourists visiting Georgia over ten months of 2013 grew by over 50% year-on-year to 660,000, Georgian prime minister’s envoy on cooperation with Russia Zurab Abashidze said on Friday.
Abashidze said in the statement, published in Tbilisi, that the growing inflow of tourists from Russia “to an extent may be considered as a result of a direct bilateral dialogue and establishment of a less confronting atmosphere between the two countries.”
Russian tourists most often visit the capital city — Tbilisi, the Black Sea resorts Batumi and Kobuleti, and the high-mountainous scenic Kazbegi district, which borders Russia. Tourists from Russia ranked fourth in the list of foreign visitors to Georgia in 2013. This year, estimates say, tourists from Russia may take the third rank.
