Belarus: Tourism Navigation system suggested

The navigation and guidelines system for tourists should be promoted in the regions of Belarus, according to the Director of the National Tourism Agency Vyacheslav Chernov.

Belarus officially the Republic of Belarus, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Its capital is Minsk; other major cities include Brest, Hrodna (Grodno), Homiel (Gomel), Mahilyow (Mogilev) and Vitsebsk (Vitebsk). Over forty percent of its 207,600 square kilometres (80,200 sq mi) is forested, and its strongest economic sectors are service industries and manufacturing.

“Today an entire set of events should be held not only in Minsk but the entire country. For instance, due to the world ice hockey championship a system offering navigation and guidelines for tourists is being developed in Minsk, the number of hotel rooms is increasing. In my opinion it would be correct to spread the practice onto all the regions of the country during the Year of Hospitality,” explained Vyacheslav Chernov. “It is also necessary to create the infrastructure to offer sightseeing tours and additional parking lots, territories should be beautified”.

The Director of the National Tourism Agency remarked that as far as hospitality plans are concerned, a lot depends on those, who welcome foreign visitors at the border, including personnel of the State Border Committee, who are putting a lot of efforts into this area.

Vyacheslav Chernov said he believes that during the Year of Hospitality efforts of all the government agencies should produce a certain effect if they treat tourism matters using a comprehensive approach. “The need for consolidation has existed for a long time. Tourism is a complex industry. It will be impossible for one ministry or one department of an area administration to create the overall hospitality atmosphere,” he stressed.
