In Vienna (Austria) the international tourist exhibition Ferien Messe Wien has come to the end. At the national stand of Russia were presented the Rostov region, Kaliningrad, Moscow, Kaluga, Vladimir regions, the Republic of Tatarstan, as well as leading tour operators and tourist companies.
The tourist potential of the Don region as one of the Russian regions in whose territory the 2018 World Cup games will be played, the Deputy Minister of Economic Development Evgeni Mamichev introduced the Austrian public. Visitors of the exhibition learned about the transport and tourist infrastructure in the region, the objects of the tourist display, new excursion routes and programs for fans, opportunities for recreation and travel around the Don region.
Guests of the exhibition at the Russian stand also presented such a promising area of tourism development as gastronomic tourism. Each region presented its own specialties. It should be noted that the Don's delicacies aroused genuine interest among the visitors.
According to experts, our area as a tourist destination has become a noticeable region. The annual tourist flow to the region stably exceeds one million people. Recall, the Rostov region was included in the top 20 tourist-attractive regions of Russia.
One of the strengths of the region's tourism potential is event tourism. In 2017, the Rostov Region entered the Golden League of the National Rating for the development of event tourism. Also our region is included in the project "Gastronomic Map of Russia".
