MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) —— A national calendar of events attractive to tourists will be made public in January 2013, according to director of the tourism and regional policy department of the Russian Ministry of Culture, Sergei Korneyev.
“We have received very many applications from regions, from the Far East to the westernmost Kaliningrad region, to include various events, such as festivals, concerts, holidays and celebrations, into this calendar,” he said. “By the end of December, the ministry plans to draft this calendar and its database will be available in January in all Internet sources. Further on, we plan to discuss and amend it.”
“Events to be included in the calendar will be selected by experts in tourism and culture,” Korneyev noted. “The calendar will be discussed by the ministry’s two coordinating councils, on tourism and on culture. They will take into account both expert opinions and comments in social networks.”
“There are very many cities and events in Russia that might be of interest for both Russian and foreign tourists. That is why our key task is to consolidate this information and present it to general public,” he added.
