Russian tour operators explore Georgia’s tourism potential

Wednesday, February 3
The Georgian National Tourism Administration is continuing to raise awareness of Georgia and its beautiful scenery to increase the flow of tourists to the country.

More than 20 representatives from leading Russian tourism agencies visited Georgia to learn more about the diversity of the country and discover its hidden gems.

For one week, the guests exploded Georgia’s capital Tbilisi and its historic districts.

The Russian guests also visited Georgia’s wine-making Kakheti region, where they explored Sighnaghi, Kvareli and Tsinandali.

Georgia's historic city of Mtskheta was another destination that hosted the Russian guests.

The group also travelled to Georgia’s mountain areas of Gudauri, Kazbegi, Borjomi and Bakuriani.

Yesterday, Russian and Georgian tourism industry representatives met each other and planned a range of touristic packages.

Russia is one of the main countries of origin for tourists; Georgia’s consistent popularity amongst Russians can be proven by statistics. In 2015 alone, more than 925,000 Russians visited Georgia; a 14 percent increase on 2014. (
