Krasnodar, 14 June – Yug Times. Our experts have evaluated the prospects of the new summer season in South Russia.
They admitted that the opening of the Crimean Bridge will become a significant impetus for the development of the western part of the Krasnodar region, which will be a transit point for the tourists heading for Crimea. For instance, the public activist Denis Bondarevsky said that “it is obvious that the tourists planning to spend their holiday in southern Russia will be interested to go to Crimea. So, it is very important to create such conditions that will help the Krasnodar regional budget get additional revenues from the tourist flow.” The resort fee will become another important novelty of the upcoming season. Starting from July 15, a family of two will pay 120 roubles for a week-long stay at a Kuban seaside resort. Experts believe that such sum may hardly scare away most of the holidaymakers. What may is the fuel whose price has of late been soaring up.
“The price for petrol is reckoned in the prime cost of all goods and services, so the prices will undoubtedly go up,” assumed Denis Bondarevsky. “Neither can we exclude a speculative price hike on the part of some dishonest takers. It’s a task of the controlling agencies to nip such attempts in the bud.”
For Sochi, the matches of the 2018 World Cup will become the second chance to prove its worth before the international audience, for lots of fans will come to support their national teams.
Speaking of the upcoming season, Deputy Governor Vasili Shvets was quoted as saying that the tourist flow may increase by 3% this year. As we can see, the growth won’t be as big as it was in the previous few years (in 2014-2017, it grew up by 16%), but bearing in mind the restraining factors, it still remains a good figure.
