Hi everyone!!! I was hoping you could help me. I am currently studing for a BA in Tourism Management in the UK. As part of the final year's studies I need to write a dissertation and have chosen the subject of heritage tourism in Russia. The aim of the dissertation is to determine the links between visitors' types and their motivation for visiting heritage attractions. If you have visited or are going to visit Russia and its cultural or heritage sites you opinion is very important to me and I would greatly appreciate it if you could follow the link below and participate in my survey.

Thanks alot!!!

Anna

Hi Anna and welcome to Real Russia!

Good luck with your project and if you get the chance (and are able to) it would be interesting to see the results.

All the best

I don't think this forum will be particularly helpful . I know the only motivation why majority of people from this site go to Russia...and unfortunately (for the survey) it is not heritage attractions...lol

Hi BorninRussia - maybe some - but remember ....

Real Russia process over 15% of all Russian visas in the UK, we provide over 500 rail tckets a month for people "overlanding" (at the moment), tours for groups touring for fishing and hunting, church groups, honey mooners who want something different, Moscow/St Petersburg twin city breaks, incentive travel, as well as hundreds of business visas a month for "blue chip" companies, people visiting battlegrounds of WW2 and LOTS of general tourists - we have seen an increase of over 100% in the last 2 years - there is great interest in Russia and all things Russian - the list goes on.

I think that as a Russian yourself, you would be suprised.

Chris, the introduced idea was about this particular forum, not about all customers of Real Russia as a general trend. If you read the topics of discussions for the last 6-7 months you will make your conclusions

No, I am not surprised...Russia is widely advertised in many European airports...The majority of posters are still dedicated to vodka "Stolichnaya", but some of them express european valuation of our heritage attractions...the most impressive of them was a poster in Heathrow... Ekaterininskiy palace as a background, in front of which you can see a BEAR (!!!)..the message was - "No bears, only beauties!" No doubt feeling comfortable and secure after this promise people queue in travel companies to obtain Russian visas

Some of us do actually take in some of the Heritage attractions when we visit Russia...or is it only me?

Look in the albums section and see the pics for yourself.

Of course, the main reason is to be with my beautiful girfriend but while I'm there we manage to fit in some culture as well

Malcolm, Anna is trying to find out a correlation "between visitors' types and their motivation for visiting heritage attractions"...option "to be with my beautiful girfriend" is not listed in her questionnaire

There are however, many people using the internet, who browse forums but do not necessarily participate in them, this one included. I'm sure there are many who will stumble across this forum when searching the internet for information about Russia, for whatever reason, who will be willing to participate in Anna's survey.

Best of luck with your dissertation Anna! :-)

its a fact !! my first and only reason to visit Russia the first time was to meet my national beauty...and how glad I did.

Still needing that extra forum Chris ??!!

And Gary we really do need a questionaire about cheap phone calls as £25 a month is way to expensive for most unless they have saved on not buying the engagement ring like borninrussia said or travelled by the cheapest form of transport that takes 2 days to get to Russia but saves you £25 or got married in Macdonalds like all Russians do...err I don't think so (not unless you a very young and very poor Russian Student and especially not if your a westener lol)

Well it should be included!

I filled it in anyway...

Actually, I thought the questions were a bit limited in their scope. It must have been designed with American Pensioners in mind

Spot on Natalia

That's exactly what I see when I go to the USA.

Scary isn't it?

Of course, compared to George Bush, these people are intelligent

walking round many of "our" cities and towns - apart from the accent not that much difference from what you would find there and in some cases maybe better, wouldn't take that much finding - this is another reason we moved back to Russia - here my nine year old daughter is in a normal state school and taking philosophy, studying and dissecting poems (from different nationalities) to analysie language and metopors and taking world history as well as Russian history which they see (quite rightly) as separate - whereas her cousins in the UK are treading the "bright new path" laid out and shying away from any controversial topics such as history, geography or hard stuff like maths were heaven forbid pupils might fail with numerious support teachers helping with the 30 or different “main languages spoken” in the school- so laugh for sure .... but .... remember where traditionally America has lead we follow

think we already followed Chris.....and failing very very badly.

Very true what you say about our education....atstoy !

You without any doubt made the right move for your kids and is something I would dearly like Natasha and I to do once she has UK citizenship, for a few years at least.
