Despite rising tensions and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2014, Polish tourist traffic to Russia rose a whopping 11 percent that year, Rosturizm said, citing border-guide data.

The 800,000 Poles were the most numerous among tourists to Russia in 2014, ahead of 400,000 Finns.

Overall, Russia received 32.5 million visitors last year, a 5 percent increase on the previous year. (an)
