SIMFEROPOL, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea’s First Vice-Premier Rustam Temirgaliev has advised potential Russian holiday makers to set their eyes on Crimea instead of their habitual destinations.
“I’m sure that the coming tourist season will not be upset. Some Russian tourists may find it reasonable to give up tours to Egypt, Turkey or other customary resorts in favour of Crimea,” Temirgaliev told the CrimeaInform news agency on Monday.
“Also, this would be a patriotic gesture,” Temirgaliev said.
Every year at least five or six million spend a holiday on the peninsula. Over two million Russian tourists travel to Crimea on vacation every year, he said.
At present, the Crimean authorities are working very hard to attract more tourists. Russian tour companies have started acquiring tours to Crimean resorts from May 1 to October 1, 2014, Temirgaliev said.
