Russian tourists named the countries they would like to visit the most
Russian tourists named the countries where they would like to go most of all in the absence of restrictions. The top three are Italy, Turkey and France, according to the NAFI analytical center.
The Russians also named (in descending order) China, Egypt, Germany, Japan, Spain, Thailand, USA, India, UAE, Greece, Great Britain, Brazil, Australia, Vietnam, Cuba, Switzerland and Cyprus.
Among survey participants, 84% said they love to travel and only 16% said they don't.
"The Russians miss international travel nowadays and wish to fly abroad to get acquainted with the history, natural attractions and culture of foreign countries as soon as possible. So, it is extremely important to continue active cooperation with the tourist offices of foreign countries, as well as to ensure the restoration of international air and railway communications," Irina Ivankova, director of research in the fields of tourism and transport at NAFI, commented on the results of the survey.
The survey was conducted in May and involved 1 600 people over the age of 18 in 53 regions of Russia. The statistical error of the data does not exceed 3,4%.
