SIMFEROPOL (QHA) - Crimean health resorts have greater potential and provide better level of treatment than foreign ones, states analytical material prepared by experts of the EU project «Crimean Tourism Diversification and Support Project ", reports the Resort Information Center. «They are still competitive in price. An average one-day stay in a health resort in Western Crimea during a comfort season (including accommodation, food and health treatment) ranges from 50 to 68 dollars, state the experts. In turn foreign resorts, such as in Estonia and Hungary attract by lower price or better service and offer additional touristic proposals. Experts believe cooperation of health resorts with touristic firms will help in attracting more tourists, as the demand exists. According to experts, creation of the specific touristic agency, which would create a new product of a better quality, considering the interests of domestic and foreign tour operators will allow to bring this service to a new level. “This product should look like a complete package that includes discounts on travel to places of rest and treatment, transfer to the resort "- summed up the experts. As reported earlier, EU project “Crimean Tourism Diversification and Support Project” was presented in March 2012, during XXI International Trade fair “Crimea.Resorts.Tourism-2012”.
