Tourist flow to Moscow this year will set a record and will reach 25 million tourists. Such data was presented by the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, commenting on the successes of the capital in the tourism field and the recent World Travel Awards in the nomination “Best Travel Destination. City".
“Moscow is recognized as the best city for tourism-2019. This is a comprehensive indicator that speaks of the growth of Moscow's attractiveness, improvement, hotel management, catering, restaurant business, all areas, including the safety of the city,” Sergei Sobyanin said.
The mayor also noted that this record of 25 million people still does not take into account those who come here for less than 24 hours. Taking into account short-term excursions, about 40 million tourists came to the city.
He also noted that tourism for Moscow has become a serious "industry".
