Over the past two years, the Russian tourism industry has undergone serious changes primarily due to the growth of domestic tourism. The modern tourism industry consists of hotels, restaurants, and tour companies as well as educational, health, entertainment, sports, and other services. Travel agents, tour operators, transport carriers, and others are all active in the industry. In total, the sector generates 1.5% of the country’s GDP, and has an impact on the development of 53 related industries. This opens up great opportunities for the growth of tourism as one of the key drivers of regional economic development. How can favourable market conditions be exploited to develop domestic tourism? What areas within domestic tourism should be prioritized for support? How does tourism affect the development of regional economies? How can the quality of tourist products be improved in the regions? What hurdles are inhibiting the development of tourism in the regions, and how can they be overcome? How can investors be attracted to the tourism industry?
