Petersburg opens tourist season

Sergey Voronkov, President of the Russian Union of Exhibitions and Fairs, Director General of ExpoForum International: “In the current difficult economic reality, it's vital to see positive trends.”

“For instance, today we can safely say that we have an opportunity to explore the touristic potential of our country. And it is a great potential, from travel destinations to variety.

In St. Petersburg, the variety is the most spectacular. 

On April 30, the city launched the summer tourist season, which means that our hospitable city is awaiting for visitors for the season of “white” nights: connoisseurs of walking the famous places of St. Petersburg and those who like to bask on the landscaped beaches of the Gulf of Finland. Yes, it is true that in the recent years, the weather has not been kind to us. 

But the season of major business events is also starting. Very soon the city will host SPIEF – a large international forum. Thus, another traveling area is business tourism. It is quite promising. St. Petersburg has all that is necessary to hold events at any level: a variety of sites, accessibility to transport, first-class accommodation and all kinds of gastronomic delights. We also have our great architecture and traditional St. Petersburg hospitality!

That is to say, we're going to be alright!”
