"Those who plan to spend the summer in the sanatoriums need to hurry, because about 80% of the places are reserved for the summer months," said Bolbatovsky.
He also noted that the full filling of Belarusian health resorts is predicted. According to Bolbatovsky, holidays in Belarus are very popular among foreign citizens: for example, last year the export of services of sanatorium-resort organizations increased by 13%.
"Each year the amount is equivalent to about $ 100 million, according to the results of 2018, it reached 195 million rubles. This trend is also evident in the first quarter," he added.
According to preliminary data, experts note a growth rate of more than 15%: revenue will be about 40 million rubles.
In the first quarter of this year, the average cost of one bed-day in a standard double room was slightly higher than 53 rubles. It is assumed that for the remaining 20% of free places, the price due to demand will increase slightly – up to 55 rubles per day.
