Visitors from Iran were interested in Bashkortostan tourism opportunities
Visitors from Iran were interested in the tourist opportunities of Bashkortostan. A joint activity for the tourism development was discussed at Rosturizm section of the Russian-Iranian Socio-Cultural Forum in Ufa.
Iran is estimated as a safe country for tourists and a promising direction for the development of educational tourism, both for Russians and for residents of Bashkortostan. The country with its attractive natural conditions and historical sights is among the top ten countries of the world, most attractive for tourists.
Russia, in turn, is also of interest to Iranians. Recently the number of Iranian tourists who visited the Russian Federation has grown significantly. The Iranian side appreciated the tourism potential of the Republic of Bashkortostan presented at the forum. The guests were shown a new halal tourist project or "green route", combining elements of ecotourism and confessional component. The tour includes visits to Muslim and Orthodox shrines in Ufa, Chishmy, Davlekanovo, Burzyan and Uchaly districts, it is dedicated to both Muslimism and Orthodoxy.
"If the people of Iran know where Bashkortostan with its beauties is located, everyone would be interested to come here and see these places for themselves," said the Special Assistant to the President of Iran for Ethnic and Religious Minorities' Affairs Ali Younesi. "In my turn, I would also like to invite the people living in Bashkiria to get acquainted with our country."
