Interesting travel destinations, workshops, folk crafts and much more were presented by the Republic of Karelia at the RUSSIA EXPO on the Day of the Region.

A theatrical presentation of an interactive map of the Republic - one of the novelties of the region, which will help guests in finding new places to visit and routes - was prepared for the guests.

"Tourism is one of the main drivers of the Republic's economic development. In recent years, the tourist flow to Karelia has almost doubled. In 2023 we expect growth to 1 million 700 thousand tourists. Tax revenues from tourist and hotel organizations have also increased by 2.6 times. Along with the growth of tourist flow, the need for accommodation facilities has also increased. This year we have increased the total number of rooms in the region by almost two thousand beds, in particular due to the national project "Tourism and Hospitality Industry", which is implemented on the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin", - said the Head of the region Artur Parfenchikov.

The exposition presented one of the most popular types of folk crafts among Russians - unique products of Karelian craftsmen. These include works of gold embroidery.

"We have an embroidered map of Russia, and Karelia is represented on it by this very pattern - and, in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful. One can only bow one's head before the labor and tenacity of those people who have preserved this skill, carried it through the years, and today continue to work on it", - Natalia Virtuozova emphasized.
