The Presidents of Russia and Kazakhstan visited the tourist exposition of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug at the XV international cooperation forum taking place in Petropavlovsk. To visit the ethnic dwelling “the choum” the presidents turned aside from the previously planned route, as the media channel “Ya Molod” (“I am young”) reports.
The deputy director of the regional department of youth policy and tourism Nayil Khairullin and the director of the regional tour operator “Yamal-Tour” Aleksey Zubenko welcomed the heads of the states in the ethnic Yamal choum. The most popular types of tourism in Yamal were presented, and the key points of attraction for Russian and foreign tourists were marked: the Northern Lights, the Polar Circle and the nomadic camp, where it is possible to touch nature in the direct sense of the word.
Previously, the exposition of Yamal was visited by the Minister of economic development of the Russian Federation Maksim Oreshkin, the governor of the Tyumen Oblast Alexander Moor, the governor of the Orenburg Oblast Yuriy Berg and the President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov.
