"Derbent is our cultural heritage and it deserves to become a major tourist destination where people can come from all over the country. As you know, the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev decided to extend the celebratory events till 2018. It means that we will celebrate the anniversary each September 19 in 2015-2018. We do everything to develop Derbent, to increase its tourism potential and investment attractiveness. This celebration is only the beginning for a further development of Derbent "- the deputy Prime Minister said.
