Published on : Tuesday, November 28, 2017

indexBy the end of 2020, the Volga Republic of Tatarstan will receive three tourism clusters that are expected to increase tourist inflow by 50,000-100,000 on a yearly basis, as expressed by the head of the regional tourism committee, Sergei Ivanov, told TASS on Monday.

 

“The Sviyazhsk cluster will be completed this year, the Bolgar cluster in 2018-2019 and the Verkhny Uslon cluster in 2019-2020,” Ivanov said.

 

The tourist influx to the ancient towns of Bolgar and Sviyazhsk is gradually increasing by 20-30% annually, he added.

 

Last year, Tatarstan greeted around 2.9 million tourists, a 7% increase in comparison to 2015.

 

In 1551, Sviyazhsk was established by Russian Czar Ivan the Terrible as a fortress, 30 kilometers to the West of Kazan, and the capital of Tatarstan. This year, the local Assumption Cathedral and Monastery was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

 

The flow of tourists to Sviyazhsk doubled last year, reaching 525,000 people approximately.

 

The town of Bolgar situated 140 kilometers from Kazan, came into existence in the 9th-10th centuries AD. The political and cultural center of Volga Bulgaria, had adopted Islam in 922. The Bolgar state historical and architectural museum-reserve was established in Russia in 1969.

 

Last year, the tourist inflow to Bolgar surpassed 472,000 people, Tatarstan’s tourism committee said. Ivanov said that the third cluster in Verkhny Uslon is expected have spa and wellness resorts.

 

As a whole, Tatarstan is all geared up to develop nine tourism clusters and is currently seeking investors for these projects.
