Russia as a Tourist Destination: What Is Lacking?
30 September 2016
17:00

There is ample opportunity for Russia to develop its tourism industry; however the potential for domestic tourism services is still far from being fully exploited. The highly competitive nature of the global tourism market calls for the creation of a maximally attractive, comprehensive approach to increasing the country’s competitiveness as a tourist destination. This requires maintaining a balance between the interests of the state, business, and local residents in tourist areas. What is holding the domestic tourism industry back today? What are the needs and expectations of tourists? What initial steps need to be taken to improve the competitiveness of domestic tourism offers? What is the growth potential for spa tourism in Russia and how could it contribute to solving the other challenges identified?
