66% of Ufa residents plan to rest at the sea this year, according to the international tourist meta-search momondo.ru. Beach resorts of Russia and foreign countries are at the top of demand. The most common duration of summer leaves is two weeks. The three most demanded cities are Sochi, Antalya, Anapa. In addition to the southern resorts, the top 10 includes four more internal destinations — Moscow is on the 4th place, St. Petersburg — on the 6th, Gelendzhik and Krasnodar — on the 8th and 9th respectively.
Istanbul became the most popular foreign destination not only among Ufa residents but also Russians in general. The average cost of flying there from the capital of Bashkortostan was the lowest among the foreign cities in the world. The national currency of the country continues to decline in relation to the dollar and euro, which makes domestic prices even more attractive for tourists, experts explain.
According to the research, this year most Ufa residents expect to spend on vacation 39 — 78 thousand rubles. This budget is planned by 33% of the residents of the capital of Bashkortostan. 21% hope to keep up to 39 thousand rubles and the same number — from 78 thousand to 156 thousand rubles. That is, with an average salary in the republic of 30 thousand rubles, the majority pays 1-2 salaries for vacation. Advance purchase of trips and tickets can significantly save tourists funds, the specialists of the service noted.
