MOSCOW, September 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia was the third in the world in 2013 for the number of tourists traveling to Europe on holiday, the Association of Tour Operators of Russia said on its website on Tuesday, citing the data of the European commission on tourism.
The leader was Germany, which accounted for 14% of all the tourist visits in Europe. It was followed by Great Britain with 9%, and Russia was the third with 6%, but it had the highest growth in the number of visits to Europe, which increased by 13% as compared to 2012, while Great Britain and Germany showed lower rates.
In the light of current political developments, it is unclear so far whether Russia can retain the position in 2014, the European travel commission said.
In the rating, Russia is followed by France, the Netherlands and Italy.
