Russia and Finland to open Russian-financed tourism hub in Finland
Russia and Finns are set to open a new Russian-funded tourism hub that will be the first Russian-owned tourist site in Finland.
The Russian-Finland tourism site will be located in Karelia, in the western part of the country.
The new site will have a total area of 4,800 square meters, a new restaurant, and a bar.
The first site in the region will open in 2019, and the second in 2020.
The two new sites in Krasnoyarsk, located in the north, will be opened in 2024.
Russia’s Ministry of Tourism and the Finnish government announced the project in December.
Karelian President Valeriy Chiklevsky has also said he wants the new Russian site to be located at a popular tourist destination in the country’s north.
The project was announced at the Russian-Finnish Ministers’ Meeting on the Future of Tourism in 2018.
Russia, Finland’s largest trading partner, signed a cooperation agreement with Finland in 2014.
The Finnish Ministry of Culture, Arts and Sports, the Finnish State Council for Culture and Sports and the Russian Academy of Sciences have signed an agreement on the future development of Russian-oriented tourism in Finland, and Finland is the first country in the world to establish a Russian-favored tourist site.
Russia and the other Nordic countries have been trying to create a permanent presence in the northern regions of Russia.
According to the International Trade Organization, Russia is the world’s second largest importer of Russian goods, and has a long history of economic cooperation with Finland.
Finland’s first Russian tourist site opened in 2009, and Russia and Russia’s first joint project opened in 2011.
In the northern region of Karelie, Finland has a history of joint projects with Russia, and they also have a long friendship with Russia.
In 2016, the Russian Embassy in Helsinki, along with Finnish and other Nordic nations, hosted a joint event in Moscow to promote tourism and cooperation in the Northern Russian Region.
In September 2018, Russia signed a memorandum of understanding with Finland, which has a high degree of tourism in the North.
Russian tourism is a key pillar of the cooperation between the Nordic countries and the EU.
Russia has become one of the most popular destinations in the Nordic Region due to its proximity to Europe, the largest market in the EU for Russian goods.
