Head of Tourism Department of Yerevan Municipality: 1,494,779  tourists visited the Armenian capital in 2017

ArmInfo. Over the past 2017,  1,494,779 tourists visited Yerevan, that is, 18.7% more than in 2016.  This was announced at the press conference on March 7 by the head of  the tourism department of the Yerevan City Hall Gevorg Orbelian.

Orbelian noted that the past year of 2017 in tourism was quite  active. According to him, a bus is very popular among tourists, which  carries out excursions around the capital of Armenia. "Soon several  new hotels will open in the capital, which indicates the development  of tourism in Armenia," Orbelian said.

The head of the tourism department also stressed the fact that the  Yerevan municipality tries to attract tourists in every way,  organizing various cultural festivals. Orbelian noted that a number  of interesting events are expected to be held in 2018, the main of  which is "Erebuni-Yerevan 2018", this year the Armenian capital will  turn 2800 years old.

Speaking about the organization of the Francophonie summit, Orbelian  emphasized the fact that on the eve of the summit of the Francophonie  the Yerevan municipality intends to install guest posters in  different languages, and in some museums of the country there will be  tablets with the names of the exhibits in French.

The head of the tourism department also noted that the tourists in  the capital of Armenia are most attracted by the budget, and the fact  that Yerevan, according to international data, is one of the safest  cities in the region.

As the main problem in the sphere of tourism, Orbelian pointed out  the lack of affordable transport, which routes from the capital to  cultural and historical sights in the regions of the republic.  "However, we are already dealing with this problem," Orbelian said.

The head of the tourism department also noted that tomorrow, on the  eve of March 8, interesting events and flash mobs will be held in  different parts of the capital, as well as the staff of the mayor's  office at the airport will give flowers to all women who arrived in  the capital.
