Time to rest in Russia. Pskov region. Polistovsky Reserve
Polistovsky Reserve, together with other representatives of the tourism industry of the region, took part in the exhibition "Time to rest in Russia. Pskov region". Today, in the wake of an active import substitution, such events are becoming more relevant and attract more and more exhibitors and visitors.
On the 15th-16th of April expocentre "Mashinostroitel" brought together representatives of travel agencies, hotel industry, catering, museums, and other organizations engaged in internal tourism. The first day of the exhibition coincided with the Day of environmental knowledge, and Polistovsky Reserve staff made a presentation dedicated to ecotourism offers of the protected area.
Large number of visitors were interested in eco-tourism. It is gratifying that many people have already known Polistovsky Reserve and asked questions about the possibilities to come for the tour. Several people even booked tours to eco-trails and excursions of Tsevlo villagers immediately after the exhibition.
There were lots of people of different ages among the visitors: students, families with children, and the elderly. Not all of them have possibilities to get to the Reserve by their own transport, that's why many of them were interested in the opportunity to visit Polistovsky Reserve as part of an organized tour from Pskov. Now Reserve actively works on establishing cooperation relations with Pskov travel agencies.
We thank Public Council on Tourism of the State Committee of the Pskov region on culture for the invitation and organization of the event. For Polistovsky Reserve it is a great opportunity to tell Pskov residents about the unique nature of the region and the opportunity to visit it, and also to meet colleagues from the region's tourism industry .
