Press service of the town’s administration reminds that at the end of last touristic season 201, 670 tourists visited Belokurikha, and it is invested 474.4 million rubles in the tourism industry. The total tourist traffic to the town has increased by 5 percent. 125 thousand people took rest and treated in the health resorts in 2014.
“The last five years the growth of tourist traffic has been seen in the Altai health resort. On average, every year it increases by 5-7 percent. Therefore, in my opinion, the development of tourism in our town should focus not only on number of tourists, but it is equally important to provide high quality services. In this regard it is necessary to expand the range of services, to improve professional skills, to create new touristic facilities, that would be interested to people and would increase the flow of tourists, and also to develop the infrastructure of our town, and to increase its attractiveness, to create favorable conditions for attracting investments in the tourism industry,” commented on the results of the sector the Head of the Administration of Belokuriha Konstantin Bazarov.
