Crimea Loses Tourists

Crimea Loses Tourists

Crimean shores have always been dear to Russians, who traditionally spend their holidays at Black Sea resorts. This year, these shores may get even dearer.
      The inhabitants of the peninsula, given over by Khrushchev to Ukraine, depend heavily on tourists, coming chiefly from Russia. Their income is accumulated in the hot days of the summer season.
      However, the patterns are changing. It is not so much the political turmoil over U.S. troops who have come to take part in the Sea Breeze Military Exercises. The underlying reasons for the ebb are mostly economic.
      The cost of holidaymaking in Crimea is up some 60% on the past year. There are legal amendments which impose heavier obligations on the industry. New regulations only led to a jump of 9%.
      There might be 30%-40% fewer tourists from Russia than last year. The rising costs may make Russians look in other directions. They can prefer Turkey or Bulgaria, where service quality is definitely higher.
