Gomel hotels offering ‘all-inclusive’ guest cards to foreign tourists
The ‘entrance tickets’ will allow entry to all museums, exhibitions and sports facilities in Gomel free of charge
The idea has been initiated by the Department of Education, Sports and Tourism of the Gomel City Executive Committee, and is now seeking partners, so that the scheme can grow.
“This practice is common across several European states, and elsewhere, helping attract tourists. The card is sure to be popular during the International Sozhsky Karagod Festival, hosted by the regional centre,” asserts the Deputy Head of the Department of Education, Sports and Tourism of the Gomel City Executive Committee, Alexey Zhikharev. He is inviting IT developers to create a mobile application detailing and mapping local sights, from museums and shops to sports and entertainment facilities. In the meantime, he suggests that guests use the ‘Minsk-Minsk’ popular programme, the directory of which unites all of Belarus’ top sites.
