On the threshold of the next summer tourist season, Inturmarket-2017 International Exhibition started in Crocus Expo in Moscow. The event will take place on March 11-13.
Representatives of 12 countries and 81 regions of Russia came here to show the possibilities for future development of tourism. This is the 12th Inturmarket Exhibition and it has attracted a lot of attention and visitors, interested in tourism in Russia. One of the main themes of the event was educational tourism, which is linked with ecological and environmental tourism and volunteers’ activity. Our protected territories also participate in the event.
On March 12 the Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve took part in this event in Crocus Expo. Our stand was not as huge as some other installations from different parts of Russia, but it still was popular. We had a lot of visitors, who were interested in our geographical location and excursion possibilities. The Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve as the closest to Moscow part of the nature reserves system of Russia may become the first step for the environmental enthusiasts to visit nature reserves and tourist routs.
Our famous wisent calf Zubrenok played a part in conquering the attention. He invited adults and children to get acquainted with his home – the Prioksko-Terrasny Reserve. Many guests wanted to take pictures of Zubrenok and to talk with our employees, to watch the presentation and to take booklets and souvenirs.
Our reserve believes, that such events are very important, and will continue to participate in similar events. We hope, that guests from the Inturmarket-2017 Exhibition will visit some day our reserve. That means, that there will be more environmental enthusiasts and nature lovers!
