Tourism not only plays a vital role in the economic growth, but also
significantly affects its image as a whole, influencing, among other things,
the investment attractiveness. Today there are favorable conditions for the
development of tourism in Russia. This is due to increased financial
accessibility of travel, development of infrastructure and new directions for
both traditional tourism and ecotourism. The attractiveness of many cities and
territories is growing due to the preparation and holding of major
international events: Sochi Olympics, Youth Festival, 2018 FIFA World Cup.
