Tourism Minister On Rescue Mission To Russia

Croatia’s Minister of Tourism Darko Lorencin has arrived in Russia, where he will hold talks with Croatia tour organisers in an attempt to make sure Croatia does not lose the lucrative Russian market after new visa laws were introduced.

Croatia has adopted the European Union visa regime under which all citizens of non-EU countries require a visa when travelling to the EU, meaning non-EU Russians will now need a visa to enter Croatia. Many fear that the new law will put off Russian tourists from travelling to Croatia.

Lorencin will hold talks in Moscow today (Tuesday) before heading off to the Ukraine to hold talks on Wednesday with Ukrainian travel officials.
