More than 3 million Russians will visit Turkey this year

The interest of the tourists in Turkey has been growing constantly. And now Turkey is not only popular for its beach resorts, but it has become a year-round destination.

According to ATOR Analytical Service, the tourist flow to Turkey during 9 months of 2010 increased by 16.1% in comparison with the same period of last year, amounting to 2 996 500 people. Taking into consideration the dynamics of the current year, the result of 2010 will be more than 3 100 000 Russian people.

There are a lot of possibilities for excursions and skiing in the country. It’s important to note self-sufficiency of Turkish hotels, which takes into account all the needs of the tourists. So, winter holiday in Turkish hotel means SPA, movie theatres, show programs, gulf, restaurants of different cuisine and etc. At the same time, there are only the building itself and paid beach on the territories of the hotels in other countries.
