In 2018 representatives of 132 countries visited Crimea, Alexey Chernyak, head of the committee for the spa and resort complex and tourism of the Republic, told RIA Novosti.

"This is the first time in history of the Crimea. Despite the sanctions, foreigners come to the Republic. In the Ukrainian period, representatives of  50 countries visited the Crimean peninsula", -  he said.

Tourists from the USA, Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria and Canada have visited the Crimea.

“Representatives of these countries have been noted in the Crimea in small but organized groups. Medical tourism has become one of the factors attracting foreigners. They don't care about sanctions and they do not pay attention about what they say about Crimea, they know by their own experience that we have high-level treatment and it is impossible to replace it", - said Chernyak.

According to him, the Crimean sanatoriums are popular between foreigners all year round.
