Tourists of Khanty-Mansiysk may not be afraid to get lost in the city

Khanty-Mansiysk is becoming one of the most interesting cities in Russia for tourists. Travelers are attracted by the identity of the indigenous peoples of the North, their culture and life, unique museums and their exhibition complexes, international and national events and competitions. All this and much more annually gathers tens of thousands of tourists in the Northern land. In order to make the guests of the city as comfortable as possible to explore Khanty-Mansiysk, the tourist information center together with the authorities of Ugra fill the streets with various navigation systems. Anna Linker, Director of the IBU “Department for development of tourism and external relations”, will tell about what has already been done and what is planned.
– Our guests who come from other cities, or even from abroad, of course, it is very difficult to navigate in the new environment. It is clear that now there are gadgets with maps, but still not always have access to the Internet, and can take a lot of time to find the right information. What we, as a tourist office, do in this matter: earlier in the framework of the work on building navigation on the streets of the city there were signs indicating the location of the Tourist information center, where you can get all the information about tourism in Khanty-Mansiysk. In addition, in order to fulfill the instructions Of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, today the city has 36 roadside signs on a brown background, which also help to navigate the guests of the city. In addition, we have placed 16 maps within walking distance, that is, a person studying the map, understands where he is and what nearby attractions he can visit without using transport.
The know-How in tourist navigation has become the use of the free izi app.TRAVEL. With it you can find a tour “Walk through the center of Khanty-Mansiysk” and listen to the story about 10 attractions of the city center. The audio guide tells about the objects located on the Central square, as well as on the pedestrian Karl Marx street to the Alley of sports glory of Ugra. A pleasant voice tells a lot of interesting things: where did the monument to the legendary t-34 tank, where the flying saucer was hidden, what is” kinoperedvizhki ” and how to get to the Khanty-Mansiysk Arbat, born in the middle of the dense taiga.
– Audio guides are a popular tourist product, which is popular in many countries. We started its implementation with a walk around the city center, but we plan to develop excursions to other areas of Khanty-Mansiysk, so that guests could get more information. In the near future there will be a new route ” Road to the Temple “and a tour of the historical part of the city”Samarovo”.
Before the new year holidays, there is very little time left, so the district capital is actively preparing for the new season of the project “Khanty-Mansiysk – new year’s capital 2018-2019” including the development of maps for a more convenient search for a particular site, we note that guests and residents of the city will be able to visit more than 20 favorite events.
– For the new year’s capital, we will make maps, where the sites will be located, which will work during the holidays, with the date and time of the event. The most important thing is the new year’s passport of the tourist, with which the guest will be able to navigate “What? Where? How?”from home. It will be available for purchase in the tourist information center at Pionerskaya, 46 or at any site of the project. Traditionally produce pocket maps of the city, which can also be purchased in the TIC.
The tourist information center is not going to stop there. In the near future, 6 more maps of walking distance will be installed, the number of roadside signs will increase, and new guides will appear in the izi application.TRAVEL. As noted by Anna Sergeevna, today entrepreneurs of the city take an active part in the manufacture and placement of navigation, so the owners of a private hotel “Hotem” have already installed their pointer.
