Organised tours from the United Kingdom to Crimea will resume in 2017 for the first time since the peninsula joined the Russian Federation, Alexey Chernyak, head of the tourism committee of the regional parliament, told RIA Novosti. He said that three groups of British tourists are currently scheduled to visit Crimea.
Crimean tour operators participated in the World Travel Market in London in November for the first time since the region became part of Russia. It’s at this event that Crimean travel companies struck deals with their British counterparts.
According to Chernyak, visitors from the United Kingdom will be offered tours focused on the siege of Sevastopol during the Second World War, allowing for visitors to see not only Sevastopol but also Kerch and Feodosia.
