Russian, German and British tourists have shown a special interest in visiting Greece this summer, Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura on Tuesday said in statements to Praktorio 104.9 FM.

"It is estimated that 2016 will be an excellent year for Greek tourism," Kountoura underlined.
She also noted that Greece has managed to establish itself as a global tourist cruise destination, and made special mention to the increase in tourism from Russia and the events to be held within the Greece - Russia year.
As she said, in consultation with her Russian counterpart Alla Manilow, a forum will be held in Greece on May 20 with the view to promoting religious tourism.
"The flow from Russia is expected to be very large and Ms Manilow underlined the interest of all Russian regions to visit Greece in order to recommend it to their residents," Kountoura stressed.
