Summer holidays

Most of the respondents spent their summer holidays in the country or at home. Also, in comparison with the previous measurement, the share of vacationers abroad decreased and the share of those who chose to travel in Russia increased slightly. In total, about 4% of Russians have been abroad over the past year. First of all, the respondents were in Turkey, Egypt, Abkhazia and Kazakhstan.

This year, the majority of respondents spent their summer vacation in the country (23%), used it for household chores (15%), did not go anywhere due to lack of funds (13%), spent it on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus or in the Crimea (8%). About a quarter (23%) have not been on vacation this summer. Since October 2018, the distribution has changed little. However, compared to the previous measurement, the share of vacationers abroad decreased and the share of those who chose to travel in Russia increased slightly.

METHODOLOGY

The survey by the Levada Center was conducted September 22 – 28 2022, among a representative sample of all Russian urban and rural residents. The sample was comprised of 1631 people aged 18 or older in 137 municipalities of 50 regions of the Russian Federation. The survey was conducted as a personal interview in respondents’ homes.
