Russian tourists discovered this country relatively recently; it began to gain popularity quickly.

Add exotic African countries, and the answer to the question about the reasons for the popularity of Tunisia among tourists is ready.

The peculiarity of the climate makes those who want to come here to carefully choose the time of arrival.

Then even a trip to the desert does not seem sultry to you.
Tunisia will allow tourists not only to enjoy the sea. There are many historical monuments and interesting places in the country. In the capital – Tunisia, the Hasanid mausoleum and the Great Mosque attract tourists. The palaces of Dar Ben Abdalah and Dar el Bey are very interesting for their marble decoration.

Buying tours to Tunisia, tourists can choose any hotel, because almost all of them are on the coast. Food in hotels is good, at the height of the season for breakfast and dinner, tourists get a buffet consisting of Italian and Tunisian dishes. At other times you will have to live on the menu, although in some hotels themed evenings are practiced when the restaurant offers dishes of some kind of one cuisine. It is said that in high-class hotels they do not repeat even once in two weeks with the preparation of dinners. Choosing hotels, one must remember that the fullness of the rooms with appliances and everything necessary depends on its star. From this consists the price. Beach equipment – sunbeds and umbrellas are paid separately, but towels are better to take from home.
