Bashkortostan doesn’t need any special brand and the name of the Republic represents that very brand, which can attract tourists. The name of Republic of Altai, for instance, has the same meaning. This is the opinion of the chairman of the state committee RB for business undertakings and tourism Ruslan Kinzikeev, which he expressed during his online press conference, held by “The Public Electronic Newspaper” today.
Really, Bashkiria is well-known still since Soviet times as the region, attractive for tourism and thousand tourists came here to take part in drafting, horse routes, to relax in our health centers and to admire the beauties of our nature.
According to Ruslan Kinzikeev Bashkiria holds the title of the most attractive region for development of tourism for the second year successively and 85% of tourists, travelling inside the country, prefer Bashkortostan.
“Another thing that we are short of hotels and inns for increase of the tourist inflow” – the head of the state committee said – “By 2015 we have to erect as minimum as five-six high-class hotels in Ufa for the forthcoming summits of BRICS and Shanghai Cooperation Organization. Thus, the decision concerning erection of four-star “Hilton” is already reached”.
