These days Sochi is hosting the third all-Russian Congress tour operator and travel agents. In the course of the session on gastroturizm President of the Association of cultural and gastronomic tourism in Russia Margarita Polonik announced the results of the survey of foreigners who are asked to note the products that are associated with Russia.
“According to preliminary data, the most popular for foreign tourists and the most memorable during a visit to Russia was the borsch Moscow”, — said Polonik.
In second place was the vodka, and the third and fourth divided black and red caviar.
Other popular options – dumplings, pancakes, kvass, and buckwheat.
Polonik also noted that the share of gastroturizm in Russia is 2% of the total flow. According to her, the key challenge is the development of inbound gastroturizm, because Russian cuisine for foreigners is “not very clear”.
III all-Russian Congress tour operator and travel agents will end on November 23.
