"The Black Sea has the potential to become a major destination in cruise tourism. The volume of traffic in the port of Sinop in 2009 increased by 150% and amounted to 7.861 thousand calls", - said Ozgur Ozaslan, Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism of Turkey.

      At the Russian-Turkish conference in Gelendzhik he has presented a new Black Sea cruise route, according to which Turkish vessels will go to Sochi and Novorossiysk on the way from Istanbul.

      The route will provide an opportunity to visit 6 countries for a week and will also pass through Burgas, Varna, Constanta, Odessa, Sevastopol, Yalta, Kerch, Batumi, Trabzon, Samsun and Zonguldak.

        Members of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation receive 10% of all international tourists and 7% of the world's income.
