We have had talks with representatives of foreign travel agencies and flag carriers, Chairman of the State Committee for Tourism of the Republic of Tatarstan Sergei Ivanov told journalists at the Kazan City Press Center.
"We have seriously discussed the possibility of receiving more tourists from Iran. All Iranian tourists staying in Kazan are simply delighted with it and Tatarstan as a whole," he said.
Apart from the Iranian tourist industry's representatives, Committee officials met with their German colleagues, Ivanov noted.
According to Ivanov, he was surprised how many Australian fans had visited Kazan. A group of bikers from Oman also visited the city, he added.
"Even bikers from Oman came to Kazan all on their own via Iran and some other countries," Ivanov said.
