"We conducted a survey which found that 50% of those who were resting this season in Greater Yalta do not plan to come back," she said. According to Yurchenko, the main reason of this is a fundamental mismatch of the cost and quality criteria of the services offered to the tourists.

"The main causes of this are, in particular, the mismatch of the accommodation conditions to the unique natural potential, which we have in Yalta. Another reason is, of course, a rather low level of services, and we all perfectly know it," she explained. Yurchenko added that another deterrent for the tourists are numerous points of external trade.
