The tourist landscape of Saint Petersburg has been changed recently: tourists from Iran travel to the Nothern Capital of Russia, followed by delegations from China.
About 7 thousand people visited Saint Petersburg only for the first half of 2017, which is 70 % more than last year.
Iran is a country with richest traditions and cultural heritages, and it is very attractive for the Russian tourists.
That is why the Persian Gulf region is considered as one of the most promising destinations for tourism development.
Saint Petersburg expands the geography of its information offices to a new international information bureau.
The opening ceremony of Visit Petersburg office in Tehran will be attended by representatives from the Ministry of Tourism, tour operators from Iran Tourist Guides Association, foreign press, and representatives of embassies.
A delegation from Russia, represented by St. Petersburg City Tourism Information Bureau, will meet the guests with a welcoming speech.
