On the map of the Rostov region you can find your own "stone hedges", tulip steppes, the lands of the Amazons and even the Don Troy. But to local residents, the beauty of their small homeland often seems insipid, and in the neighboring regions they hardly know about them.
The past summer, despite all the financial injections into the tourism industry of the region, unfortunately, was no exception to the rule. Many Rostovites were still attracted by the Turkish coast and the Egyptian pyramids: more than 70% of travel agency clients chose these countries for their holidays.
Investments in Don's tourism industry are growing exponentially. The FIFA World Cup is just around the corner, the region urgently needs to gain experience in communicating with foreign tourists, but against the background of neighboring Kuban, which does not know the end of foreign guests, we are losing. Why the Don region does not manage to become a tourist Mecca, we learned from an employee of a large travel agency Tatyana Melesheva.
Yulia Panfilovskaya, “AiF on Don”: Tatiana, it's no secret that the local sharks of the tourism industry mostly offer clients a foreign direction. In fact, only a couple of agencies are engaged in excursions in the Rostov region, but their prices are comparable to the cost of a last minute ticket to Turkey. Why? No demand?
Tatiana Melesheva: You yourself answered your question. What will the average Rostovite choose - a week of rest in Istanbul or a five-hour trip to Vyoshki, where he can eat deliciously and have a good rest, but will pay the same amount in three days?

However, it is not at all necessary to travel outside the Don capital to compare the degree of comfort. Which operator would like to offer customers, say, an inexpensive bus tour of Rostov? If tourists can see anything, it is cars in a traffic jam and dusty streets.
Our monuments of architecture and history often flaunt against the background of landfills. Take, for example, old Rostov, where there are real architectural gems. But they need to be put in order. The city could be proud of the left bank and the embankment, but wrecks are adjacent to them. And all the gloss disappears even after a little rain, when the streets are drowning in water. Therefore, it is much easier to sell a foreign tour and get a commission. Today, few people want to invest their money in the development of inbound tourism, which requires very serious investments.
