August 9, 2014 21:33


The Ministry of Culture of the RF responsible for the tourism industry intends to develop children’s recreation in the country actively. This was discussed at a conference in the “Peterhof” State Museum-Reserve near St. Petersburg, where federal and regional officials, experts in the field of tourism and tour operators had a talk on children’s tourism.

Beginning from last year the Ministry of Culture developed the routes “My Russia: The City of Peter”, “Moscow - Golden Ring”, “Yasnaya Polyana for Children”, "Peterhof for Children”, “Treasures of the Ancient Kazan” and “The Culture of Crimea for Children”. More than 23 thousand students from all regions of the country will take part in these children’s travel programs by the end of 2014. Children’s trips are carried out at public expense.

In the next year the Ministry of Culture is planning to open a special children’s route dedicated to the 70th anniversary of victory in the World War II: the school students will be able to visit the battle sites, to visit the military museums in the hero cities, to learn more about the military history of the country. It is expected that the program will include visits to St. Petersburg, Volgograd and Bryansk Oblast.

The development of the routes involves Russian Military Historical Society. The negotiations with the Belarusian authorities on cooperation on the routes development are currently underway. As it was noted at the conference in Peterhof by the Deputy Minister of Culture Alla Manilova, the tourism gives the children the opportunity to get acquainted with the historical and cultural heritage of Russia, “nurtures the feelings of patriotism and national pride in the younger generation”. 

In addition, the experts of the ministry are working on the legal support of children’s recreation, inter-ministerial working groups created recently and including the experts of Rostourism, the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, the Federal Service for Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare and other government agencies, may be involved in the arrangement of the children’s recreation. They will have to solve the problems of cheaper transportation of groups of children to the recreation places, training staff for work with children and many others, as the press service of the Ministry of Culture reported.
