    Passenger Port of Saint Petersburg “Marine Façade” presents tourist potential of St. Petersburg for German tourism companies and media

    Representatives of “Passenger Port of Saint Petersburg “Marine Façade” PLC have participated in the Presentation of the tourist potential of St. Petersburg for German tourism companies and media that took place on November 9th 2015 in the Embassy of Russian Federation in Berlin, press center of Marine Façade says.

    The event was opened with a welcome speech of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russian Federation in the Federal Republic of Germany; a minute of silence was observed in memory of the victims of the crash of a Russian airplane above the territory of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt. The Ambassador has addressed the difficult situation in the tourist exchange between Russia and Germany, and pointed out a decrease in tourist flows in both directions. The Embassy of Russian Federation in the Federal Republic of Germany actively supports the tourist community of Russia, also by promoting the tourist products of St. Petersburg via the consular services of Russian Federation in Germany. The moderator of the event – representative of the St. Petersburg Committee on the Development of Tourism – encouraged the participants to benefit from the unique opportunity to visit our city, considering the improved purchasing power of foreign tourists due to the devaluation of the national currency of Russian Federation.

The event was visited by over one hundred representatives of German tourist companies and media. After the presentations the meeting continued in a free communication format – the participants had a chance to exchange contact information and took part in a raffle with prizes from the partners of the event.
