In March the Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Karelia presented the results of the "Museums in Focus" project in Moscow at the international tourism exhibition MITT*, one of the largest specialized exhibitions in Russia and neighboring countries. For three days the project team presented the new tourist products created within the project in Karelia as well as in Finland to one of the main target audiences - representatives of travel agencies, accommodation facilities, tour operators and organizers of corporate trips and events.

Karelia is considered to be a MUST SEE place with convenient transport accessibility and unique authentic culture. Finland is very popular as well. Tourists are waiting with great anticipation for opening the borders to travel to our neighbors.
