Had a talk with a person who works for a travelagency. She said it's already the 3rd year in a row that prices for Turkey are going up. She showed me prices for 2010 for a hotel( though forget wich one)for a normal family of 2 adults and 2 kids. Difference between 2010 and 2013-> 2500 euro.
She says the sole reason for this are the russians. She also said that most russians are putting themselves i, huge debts to take holidays in other countries and therefore are overly using food and beverages. You see a difference in attitude between richer russians and "poorer" russians; we've been to IC green palace and there you had russians but the upperclass. No rudeness, No drunk ones, like i told in my review the only thing you noticed that they indeed were Russian, was the dinner on their plates was 2 times the size of ours lol
