“We have a lot of visitors from our neighboring countries, so Turkey, Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia. We have recently a lot of visitors from Poland, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine, which we are very proud of. We get a lot of attention from Poland in particular and we love the attention we are getting from them. It is one of the top five countries that come and visit us. Last year we had a huge number of visitors and the rise was actually crazy for us to believe. We had more than 5 million coming to our land as tourists. This year, until October we already have more than 4 million, and until the end of the year we expect to exceed these numbers even more.”
