Maharashtra keen to attract more Russian tourists


Maharashtra is keen to promote its tourism spots like the Ajanta and Ellora caves, Mahabaleshwar and beaches along the Konkan belt to woo Russian tourists, a senior Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) official has said.

Maharashtra’s potential as a tourism destination has not been fully exploited vis-a-vis 2.05 lakh Russian tourists who visit India every year, reports Zeenews.

“A large number of tourists and businessmen from Russia visited Mumbai, but the tourism potential of our state for the Russian tourists has not been fully explored. For example, Ajanta and Ellora, hill resort of Mahabaleshwar and the beaches of Maharashtra,” MTDC joint managing director Satish Soni was quoted as saying in a press statement here on Wednesday.
