On behalf of the Tourism State Committee of the Republic of Tatarstan and on my own behalf, I congratulate the residents and the guests of our Republic, the representatives of the tourism industry, the professors and students of the specialized institutes of higher education with the World Tourism Day!
This year we celebrate our professional holiday in the difficult for the whole industry time. However, I want to wish that even this period of hardship would become the time of new discoveries and opportunities.
Now Russian residents choose the journey to Tatarstan as an alternative to the trips to European countries, and those who have already been to us, come again and advise their friends to visit our Republic.
All this has been made possible thanks to the real professionals — the workers of the tourism industry of the Republic, who are ready to provide for our guests with comfortable and safe leisure. With all my heart I want to say thank you for your labor! I’m sure that together we will overcome all challenges.
The tourism industry of Tatarstan many times proved that it is capable to find resources even in the most difficult time. For instance, this year in spite of pandemic, we managed to launch weekly weekend trips “1001 delights over the week-end” in the Republic. The trips allow to visit eight routs, including Bolgar, Yelabuga, Kama Ustye, Rybnaya Sloboda, Chistopol, Mamadysh, Bogatye Saby and Kukmor. This anti-crisis program has been created to make individual trips of locals around Tatarstan popular, however, could attract attention of guests from other regions.
I wish business achievements and unquenchable energy for new horizons to all workers of the tourism industry, and rich emotions and unforgettable experience for tourists. Let your love for travel will never fade away. See you in Tatarstan!
