PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, November 14. /TASS/. A network of visitor centers, where tourists could have a snack, rest and receive information on Kamchatka, will be set up in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, head of the regional tourist information center Sergei Bychkov told TASS on Monday.
“In 2017, a tourist visitor center on the Khalaktyr beach, which is the only center of this kind in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, will switch to a year-round schedule,” Bychkov said.
The visitor center is planned to be divided into two zones one of which will be open only in summer while the other will operate all year round. In order to encourage more tourists to visit the Khalaktyr beach, various activities will be planned. Some suggestions have already been made which include ice hockey and winter football competitions, horse riding and dogsledding. In summer, tourists could visit a café, consult the tourist information center experts about tourist destinations in Kamchatka, purchase souvenirs and attend beach volleyball competitions.
“The construction of another visitor center is under consideration, it will also be set up within Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky city limits on the Malaya Lagernaya bay. There will be a summer tourist zone, recreations areas, fire-making facilities and a café. There is no necessary infrastructure there yet although the beach is very popular with holiday-makers,” Bychkov noted.
In the future, more visitor centers will be opened in other areas of the peninsula that are popular with tourists.
The first visitor center on the Khalaktyr beach, 15 kilometers from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, has an area of 2.6 hectares. There are wooden footpaths with benches set up along them, information boards, toilets, a café and a tourist information center. There is also a football field as well as a volleyball court on the center’s territory.
