The growth of tourist flow in the Kamchatka Territory compared to 2018 amounted to 12%. The number of foreigners arriving on the peninsula in 2019 increased by 43% - up to 36,3 thousand people.

According to the head of the Kamchatka Territory Tourism and External Relations Agency, Elena Stratonova, cruise programs influenced the positive dynamics: almost 20 thousand foreigners arrived in Kamchatka by sea. In the last tourist season, 20 cruise liners entered the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky - this is a record figure for the last five years.

According to the press service of the regional government, private investment in the tourism industry has increased significantly in Kamchatka.

During the year, 16 catering points and 17 new collective accommodation facilities were opened in Kamchatka, and the hotels introduced nearly 200 additional rooms for 500 beds.
