And now we are in a ghost city. The middle of March is usually a time when the tourist season starts to bloom, and we feel the coming of Spring. Unfortunately this year we, tourist guides, are faced with a situation where there are no tourists in the streets at all."

Plus, for Russian companies in St. Petersburg, the situation is intense because business from Europe is also under the pressure, because, as we know, attention is turning now to the European coronavirus situation. It becomes harder and harder to talk about tourism from Europe, which is also a large share of the total tourist flow, to St. Petersburg."
