Travel bloggers and journalists from South Korea estimated the attractiveness of St. Petersburg during their information and study visit. A business meeting with representatives of the St. Petersburg tourist industry took place in the City Tourist Information Bureau. Before that, the guests visited the main sights of the historic centre and the palace suburbs.

The guests learned about the tourism potential of the city during the presentation. They were also interested in the World Cup experience and the awards of the Northern Capital as one of the best destinations of the European direction. It was also mentioned at the meeting that the sign of the agreement on the opening of the new Visit Petersburg office in Seoul is planned at the end of 2019. In the end, Korean and St. Petersburg colleagues discussed the possibility of cooperation.

Let us remind that from January 1, 2014, the visa regime with the Republic of Korea has been cancelled. Russian and Korean citizens, who own ordinary passports, can take short trips up to 60 days without a visa.

St. Petersburg Committee for Tourism Development regularly organizes information and study visits for foreign bloggers and journalists. The Northern Capital has already been visited by representatives of France, the United Arab Emirates, Germany and Spain.
