World Cup brings milliones of football fans and tourist to Russia. Although hundred of new hotels were built to accommodate the huge number of guests, it still does not have enough places and russian citizens began to rent out their apartments to foreigners. The prices soared to unthinkable values since the visitors will have only one choice – to stay on the street.
Our conclusion: most of the tourists are in Russia, so Barcelona hosts less visitors and the prices are not jumping yet.
