From Russia with love


THE Costa del Sol is a key destination for Russian tourists.
Last year tourism from this sector rose 50 per cent and so far this year tourist visas issued by Spain to Russian tourists is as much as the whole of 2011.
An integral plan to create a genuine magnet effect and attract more visitors from Russia to the area has been presented by the Costa del Sol Tourist Board.
In particular they are targeting the luxury travel market.
‘Russian Week in Spain’ aims to bring 500 high profile visitors to Marbella.
Then a campaign called ‘Elite Collection’ which will take place in Moscow in February involves visits to some of the most elite agencies in the country.
“Luxury creates wealth and employment,” said Malaga’s Provincial Government President Elias Bendodo.
Other measures includes familiarization trips to introduce industry specialists to the area and promoting Malaga’s language schools in Russia.
