Turkey was 14th in the world's tourism earners' list with $7.6 billion per year of tourism revenue. In this article, a profile of Russian tourists in the Antalya region was examined. The Antalya region is a very popular destination and makes an important contribution to Turkish economy.

Findings from the research provide important information about demographic aspects, travel purposes, accommodation and shopping preferences, positive and negative opinions, and expectations of Russian tourists. The study concludes with appropriate marketing and management implications for the region.
