Kiev no longer ranks among top 10 tourist destinations for locals
St. Petersburg, Moscow, Sochi, Rome, Prague, Krasnodar, Barcelona, Mineralnye Vodi, Minsk and Dubai are the the most popular destinations for Yekaterinburg travelers this year, Ural Business Consulting reports.
"The median price of an airline ticket from Yekaterinburg to some other place comes to $207 between May 1 and May 11, 2014," Dzenis said, according to Ural Business Consulting. "This is nearly the same as last year, or even lower by 2.3 percent."
The change comes on the tails of political upheaval in Ukraine's Crimea region, which was recently annexed to Russia following referendum.
