Representatives of the travel industry were invited to the meeting, presenting the tourism opportunities of Sevastopol, as well as their tourism products and possible mechanisms of cooperation with Greece.
Particular attention is drawn to the project via ferrata, as part of the active tourism route “Great Sevastopol Trail”. I would like to note that popular routes in Europe are paid. It is noted that the members of the Greek delegation were surprised that this route is state-owned and is available free of charge to everyone.
