There will be a large flow of tourists to Azerbaijan from May to late October, said the chairman of the Tourism Association of Azerbaijan.
The holding of the Games of Islamic Solidarity in Azerbaijan is a big advantage. The chairman of the Association of Tourism of Azerbaijan Nahid Bagirov said to Sputnik Azerbaijan.
According to Bagirov, the Games of Islamic solidarity increase interest in Azerbaijan and attract tourists: “But it cannot be said that the large flow of tourists to Azerbaijan is related only to these games. Today, the tourism sector of Azerbaijan is attractive not only for the Arabs, but also for tourists from all over the world.”
“Starting from May to the end of October, the country will see a large flow of tourists not only from Arab countries, but also from Europe and Russia. The hotels in Azerbaijan are 80-90% booked. The abundance of tourists is observed not only in Baku, but also in the regions of the country,” he noted. Baku hosts the IV Games of Islamic Solidarity between May 12 and 22, 2017. Twenty types of sports are included in the sports program of the Games. It is expected that the event will be attended by representatives of 57 countries and about six thousand athletes.
