The government of the Sakhalin Oblast intends to develop therapeutic tourism or recreational tourism in the region based on the Kunashir, Iturup and Sakhalin thermal springs. This was announced today at a press conference by the governor of the Sakhalin Region Alexander Khoroshavin.

"It is planned to build a hydropathic establishment for 150 places in the town of Hot Waters on Iturup. The construction will be carried out by a private company with the participation of foreign business. Design is underway, construction will begin next year," the governor said.

According to Alexander Khoroshavin, there are opportunities for the development of healing springs in the southern Kuriles. "The mayor received such an order. He will look at the possibilities for the provision of land plots, infrastructure, and we will try to finance the construction of the same facility in the southern Kuriles," Khoroshavin said.

The work on the development of the territory of the Daginsky thermal springs, according to Khoroshavin, began in 2013 with the registration of a land plot in regional ownership. Currently, competitive procedures are underway for the development of the Daginskaya Tourist Zone project and the selection of a design organization. From 2015, construction will be carried out, which involves the arrangement of sources and the creation of infrastructure for the comfort of visitors: pavilions above the springs, changing rooms, walking paths, recreation areas, administrative and utility premises, sports and playgrounds, elements of landscape design. In addition, a road is now being laid to the springs. Next year, asphalt will come there.
