Krasnodar, 5 July – Yug Times. Khristofor Konstantinidi, Minister of Resorts, Tourism and Olympic Heritage of the Krasnodar region, narrates about the opening of a new beach season, development of agritourism, and impact of the 2018 World Cup upon the region’s future.

“Today Kuban is a national leader in the development of domestic tourism. If back in 2000 it received 4.8 million holidaymakers, last year the figure exceeded 16 million. That is, over the past 18 years the number of holidaymakers coming to the Krasnodar region has increased by nearly 3.5 times.

“We reckon that this year the number will be even higher: the weather is being kind to us, we will be hosting some matches of the Mundial, and due to the opening of the Crimean bridge the motor traffic between Kuban and Crimea will grow by 35 to 40%.

“Our strategic priority is to do more than achieve a higher tourism flow - what we are aiming at is to increase the duration of the tourists’ stay, which will also help us develop such related industries as transport, consumer sphere, agriculture, etc.

“This year, we have standardized the design of our beach infrastructure. The coastal areas in Anapa, Gelendzhik, Tuapse as well as Sochi, our flagship resort, have been designed in a single style. The number of hotels working by all-inclusive system has also grown. Thirty-two hotels in Anapa, Gelendzhik, Goriachy Kluch, Sochi and Tuapse are prepared to offer a broad spectrum of services. Apart from traditional activities: beach, marine, spa, cultural, business, etc. holidaymaking, a new direction - enogastronomic tourism - is actively developing. About 30 agritourism destinations located in 11 rayons specialize on the organization of wine tours combined with regional cuisine and historical excursuses.”
