Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko held a working meeting with the Head of the Republic of Mordovia Artyom Zdunov. They discussed breakthrough projects for the socio-economic development of the region.
Then a presentation of the region’s tourism potential was held.
As part of the implementation of the national project “Tourism and the hospitality industry” in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko in Saransk, in the House of the Republic, an agreement was signed on the development of tourism infrastructure between the government of Mordovia and the corporation “Tourism.RF”.
The document was signed by the general director of the corporation Sergey Sukhanov and the head of the republic Artyom Zdunov.
“There are unique places in Mordovia that are supposed to be included in the tourist-pilgrimage cluster“ Arzamas – Diveevo – Sarov ”, since Saransk – Temnikov – Sanaksar is an integral part of the whole chain of holy places. In addition, there are unique cultural sites that are a place of attraction for our tourists. It is obvious that the tourism potential is huge here. We positively assess the fact that Mordovia was one of the first republics to sign an agreement with the Tourism.RF corporation. This allows you to get access to various instruments of the national project “Tourism and hospitality industry”, which will help local businesses to actively participate in the creation of such a necessary infrastructure for tourists. Accordingly, more of our citizens will be able to get comfortable and affordable conditions to visit unique cultural, natural places and see all the wealth that is here, ”said the Deputy Prime Minister.
The head of the republic added that a project to create a cluster “Saransk – Temnikov – Sanaksar” has begun in the region. This will be a route dedicated to the legendary Admiral Ushakov, canonized.
“This is a key point of growth in the development of tourism in the republic in the medium term,” noted Artyom Zdunov. “Within the framework of this project, it is planned to reconstruct the Sanaksar monastery, where the relics of the admiral lie, to create a modern cultural and educational complex named after him, as well as to reconstruct and improve the historical buildings of the city of Temnikov.”
“As part of the development of the cluster, it is planned to create or reconstruct about 35 objects of tourism and related infrastructure. We expect that thanks to this project, the tourist flow to the territory of the cluster will increase from 50 to 250 thousand people a year, ”Dmitry Chernyshenko stressed.
“In the course of the master planning of tourist areas, we will evaluate the quality and quantity of rooms in order to build comfortable modern tourist facilities exactly where they are in demand. New tourist complexes will help meet the growing demand. We have no doubts that there will be demand: unique objects of religious tourism, Finno-Ugric ethnics and industrial tourism developing in Mordovia will definitely find their tourist, ”said Sergei Sukhanov following the signing of the agreement. – So, in the Temnikovsky region, a pilgrimage cluster will be created, associated with our great commander, Admiral Fyodor Fedorovich Ushakov. There are also natural territories in Mordovia, which are very rich in their interesting places. “
“In the field of tourism, we have large reserves for growth, here we are clearly underperforming,” stressed Artyom Zdunov. – The fact that now we have become partners with the Turizm.RF corporation is a huge breakthrough for us. The tools that were offered to us within the framework of the signed agreement will allow us to bring the industry to a qualitatively new level. “
