Tourism in Antalya: Tow Million Tourists
Known for its beauty, beaches, and climate, Antalya has always been a shining star in the skies of tourism in Turkey and the world. Thanks to its historical places dating back to ancient times and charming nature, Antalya has a tourist destination populated by visitors from around the globe.
After the Corona pandemic spread worldwide, Antalya did not miss its tourist guests; rather, it provided them with pioneering services in safe tourism to enjoy tourism in the beautiful city with the highest infection prevention standards.
To implement precautionary measures against the Coronavirus, the Ministry of Tourism of Turkey has launched the 'Safe Tourism Programme' and has exercised strict control over its application in tourist facilities, beaches, and other places.
The Ministry has imposed on the departments and owners of facilities the extraction of the health tourism certificate, which is given to the facility, after ensuring that cleanliness, sterilization, and social distance, and facilities' staff are free of any infection.
Turkey's tourism capital, Antalya, began receiving visitors after lifting restrictions, and the number of tourists increased significantly, with 1,883,903.
Russian tourists ranked first among foreign tourists, followed by Ukrainians and Germans.
