“Turkey, Greece and Cyprus are in the list of the most popular destinations for Russians in the summer of 2017”, - said the Executive Director of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) Maya Lomidze.

"Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Spain, as well as Croatia, Montenegro and Italy are among the TOP 10 of the most popular destinations for Russian tourists in the summer of 2017. The domestic market includes the TOP 5 regions - Krasnodar Region, Crimea, St. Petersburg, Moscow and Kazan", - she added.

According to M. Lomidze, the autumn season unlikely will make a major change in the rating of preferences, but it can change the profile within the TOP 10 popular destinations.

"In particular, Anapa, which has now begun to cut prices, may take the second place after Sochi. Spain, which does not cut prices, can worsen its position, and Bulgaria or Italy will come forward. So the final results we should sum up later", - she noted.
