"From February 2018 until the beginning of the World Cup we will be organising information tours for bloggers, journalists and people, who are engaged in information support, in order to tell them about the city and its places of interest," she said.

According to Tukanova, the tours will be organised primarily for representatives from France, Sweden, Egypt and Japan. "We are interested in those countries that have an interest not only in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Our task is to pique their interest and keep them here so that Sverdlovsk Oblast attracts tourists after the tournament," she noted.
