In addition, FIFA will be holding ‘Fan Fests’ in many Russian cities. With big-screen coverage of the games, alongside live music and local food and drink, the Fan Fests will be the best way to watch the World Cup if you do not have a ticket to the games
Moscow room rates rise for World Cup
According to the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rosturizm), Russia will be visited by 1.5 mln foreigners during the World Cup. This should have a greater impact on the operational performance of the hotel industry in Moscow than in St Petersburg as free rail travel and affordable flights will enable some fans to base themselves in Moscow and travel on day trips to St Petersburg. Colliers forecasts that average annual hotel occupancy in Moscow could grow by 5 pct to reach 80 pct, and in St Petersburg by 3 pct to 71 pct.
