UFA, 31 May 2016. /Bashinform News Agency, Olga Murtazina/. Bashkortostan entered the top ten most attractive tourist regions during the May holidays. First of all traditionally high interest of Russian tourists in rafting over the Bashkir rivers contributed to it, said the head of the State Committee for Entrepreneurship and Tourism RB Vyacheslav Gilyazitdinov during a roundtable on domestic tourism. He also informed about the work done to attract foreign travelers to the republic. Commenting on the recently held a demonstration tour for German and Austrian tour operators and bloggers, the head of the State Committee told about the impressions of Europeans. As it turned out, the best option for them was to spend three or four days in a hike and then return to a comfortable hotel or resort. The Chinese asked to take into account some special tips in services. The group from the Middle East was mostly impressed by Bashkir resorts and their very affordable prices. The group from Moscow was satisfied with everything, but noted the lack of information about the Bashkir tourist products. "As a result, we have formed a definite view. There is much work to be done: we will participate in all exhibitions, shows, presentations, corporate events with travel content. Such an event could be the recently passed "Heart of Eurasia" festival", Vyacheslav Gilyazitdinov gave an example.
According to the Committee, at the moment about 15 branded routes compliant with Rostourism services are available in republic, and more than one hundred short trips from one to five days.
