With thanks to my friend Sanya Shumar from Radio RCN 89.3 , I had the opportunity of an exclusive interview with the Moscow Minister of Tourism. Focussing the interview on the Russian Tourism Industry and the myriad of other businesses and individuals who help make it thrive.
Mr. Sergei Cheremin, the Moscow Minister of Tourism introduced me to the buoyant tourism sector of Russia and discussed the future for tourists to Moscow. He mentioned that the inflow of tourists from the French Riviera to Moscow and vice versa remains stable. These two completely different destinations have a complementary role on the international tourism market. Moscow has seen a dynamic development in property and with its rich cultural and historical heritage that has been maintained ensures tourism continues to expand.
With business and congress tourism facilities growing as well as the improving level of comfort, the city of Moscow will continue to attract visitors. The city can be discovered many ways and a large number of excursions arrive each year who enjoy walking, biking and cruising. With current exchange rates, traveling to Moscow is becoming even more interesting for foreign tourists.

Moscow is a next generation hi-tech city. A free Wi-Fi incentive enables internet access to over a million users of the city subway. Smartphone users can also take advantage of taxi or excursion booking and car sharing mobile apps.
Moscow also hosts numerous festivals, making this an exciting and modern city to visit again and again. These include the Light Festival, International Festival of The Reconstruction of the Middle Ages, as well as Russian Gastronomic Seasons.
