  • National tourist offices abroad offer to visit Vologda

  • The national offices “Visit Russia” in Finland, Germany and the United Arab Emirates offer foreign tourists to make a journey to Vologda and other cities included into the route “Silver Necklace of Russia”.

    It is worth reminding that this project unites the most competitive tourist and recreational and historical and cultural centres of Russia’s North-West by analogy with the Golden Ring. It includes 14 cities, such as Vologda, Veliky Novgorod, Kingisepp, Tikhvin, Vyborg, Staraya Russa. All of them are connected between each other with several radii. It gives a chance for tourists to make their tour as much convenient as possible.

    According to the representatives of “Visit Russia”, the popularity of tours to Russia abroad increases today. Over 50 people come to the national office in Helsinki every day: 40 percent are citizens of Finland, 60 percent – guests of the Scandinavian country – tourists from all over the world.

    The attendance rates of the offices and the flow of foreign tourists to Russia are to increase in future. Next year “Visit Russia” plans to organize a lot of events aimed at promotion of new tourist routes in the Russian Federation: workshops, press tours, road shows, participation in the leading Scandinavian fairs and so on.

    It should be added that the Federal Tourism Agency intends to open national tourist offices in Italy, Iran, Japan, South Korea, Spain and Turkey. Travelers from these countries are expected to be interested in visiting Russian cities.
