Blogger under nickname ‘Crimea Ukr’ published photos of popular tourist locations in Crimea – they are empty.
Despite warm weather beaches of Koktebel, Feodosia and Sudak were without tourists during May holidays. Souvenir sellers also suffer from lack of clients.
May holidays were usually a final rehearsal before tourist season in Crimea. In 2013 100 000 people visited Crimea during May holidays, and total number of tourists during the season reached 6 million.
‘Koktebel meets with solitary streets during May holidays. Shops, cafeys are closed. Markets are empty. Sudak in Russian Crimea resembles estrangement zone near Chornobyl. Russia transform tourist Crimea into estrangement zone. From tourist’, – the blogger wrote.
