This all is about VKontakte, the most popular social media network in Russia. It is no surprise that a huge lot of affinity content is daily generated in all of it. So, we collected authors of blogs and popular public pages, collaboration with whom can be interesting for travel industry actors.

Thematic Public pages

As a rule, such public pages are characterized by pretty monotone content: beautiful pictures of landmarks from different countries with short texts. However, this does not prevent them from being quite popular in the Russian Internet.

Love should not be all on one side…

Here is a great example of why travel operators and agencies must be subscribed to the public pages of the regions whose tours they promote—in social media, one can get clients who are going to take part in a certain event.

Question from the user in the comment: “I wonder what travel agencies bring tourists to this event (in Finland) from St. Petersburg?”

This is far from the complete segmentation of VKontakte public pages, and during the updates, we will definitely be extending not only the number of participants but also providing a clearer breakdown by certain categories.

The list of travel public pages and groups on VK is updated quarterly.
