The Mayor reported that due to the Champion’s League Final tens of thousands of tourists will come to Kyiv in May.
“Our task it that every tourist has something to tell about a wonderful city of Kyiv at home,” Klitschko said.
Around two million guests are expected to visit Kyiv in 2018. In comparison, 1.5 million people visited Ukraine’s capital in 2017.
Due to this, the Mayor intends to develop the tourist potential of the city. Every tourist spends around $150 on the average per day, therefore, the increase of tourist attractiveness is a direct investment in the city’s economy.
“Saint Volodymyr Hill, the Artist Alley, and the Landscape Alley will be restored. We will open very nice ladders from the Landscape Alley to the Honchary-Kozhemyaki area around the St. Andrew’s Church,” Klitschko promised.
Besides the Champion League, a lot of tourists are expected to come in autumn, when Kyiv will be hosting the 56th WBC Congress.
“This is another great opportunity to attract more guests to the capital, to present our city. And my mission, as the Mayor of Kiev, is to do my best to host more and more guests,” Klitschko stated.
