New railway routes with a visit to the attractions of Tula Oblast will be developed jointly with “Russian Railways” JSC, as the Head of the region Aleksei Dyumin said.
“Russian Railways” company is our partner in the development of the tourist direction. We are already developing unique railway routes to a variety of attractions of the region, primarily for children. I am sure that they will become a worthy alternative to car tourism” - Dyumin said at the 3rd Railway Congress; he also noted that Tula Oblast was the only region where museum complexes were being created at the already existing railway stations. There are a total of 13 such tourist facilities at the moment.
