Press Secretary of Russian Union for Tourism, Irina Tyurina, announces at Discovering the Union State: from Brest to Vladivostok media forum that Russian tourists primarily visit Belarus for treatment and recuperation


“Tourists see Belarus as a destination for health rehabilitation, with 80-90 percent of Russian tourists going to Belarus to receive health treatments,” stated Ms. Tyurina.

Russian tourists speak highly of the quality of medical services, and the attitude of personnel towards clients at Belarusian health resorts. “People are pleased. Belarusian health resorts have preserved Soviet healthcare traditions, which is appreciated,” she emphasised.

Usually, Russian tourists stay in Belarus 10-12 days and especially favour New Year holiday trips. Minsk and some of the country’s regions are popular, with 10-20 percent of Russian tourists coming for sightseeing. The most popular Belarusian resort among Russians is the Silichi Ski Resort. Ms. Tyurina noted that New Year winter holidays in Belarus have risen in price by 10 percent, but prices remain competitive in comparison with those in Europe.

The Discovering the Union State: from Brest to Vladivostok media forum was hosted by Moscow, with participants discussing how best to enhance the tourist potential of the Union State and prospects for the single information and humanitarian space of our two countries.
