In Finland missing money “crazy Russians”, writes media

MOSCOW, Feb 25 — RIA Novosti. Russian tourists have less to spend in Finland, whereas before they could “carry the money bags”, writes Yle.

It is reported that in the 1990s and early 2000-ies of the Russian citizens were coming to Tahko ski resort and bought the houses and plots for 10-20 million marks, when their real value was only two million. Also Russians prefer to buy snowmobiles instead of to rent them and then left them at their houses.

Money “crazy Russians” could leave for a variety of things. So, one person could order in the restaurant, all the dishes from the menu just to their taste. The hotels were the pilots of private jets — if Russian tourists want a change of scenery. The Russians spend the money to rent cats.

However, now the Russian tourists in Finland has ceased to mindlessly spend money: for example, instead of going to restaurants they often cook themselves. Also decreased the number of tourists, and they are now staying for a shorter period.
