When choosing a place for a future holiday, Russians are now guided not so much by political motives as by security issues. Many still remember how all borders were closed due to the coronavirus and people had to spend huge sums to return to their homeland.
We recently faced a situation where all the borders were closed overnight and people returned home, spending just crazy money. The Russians have such fears, and they are well-founded. This will greatly influence the choice of destination.
Also, when choosing the resort of a future holiday, tourists should take into account the anti-Russian steps that Western states are taking. Now there are many examples of inadequate response to the national identity of Russian tourists. This is one of the factors that seriously affect the personal safety of the tourist and, as a result, the choice of vacation destination.
But, nowadays Russian tourists still have a choice. They can go on vacation to Turkey, Egypt, the Caribbean, North Africa, Southeast Asia, as well as Belarus, Armenia and Abkhazia.
