The study was performed by the Center for Information Communications "Rating" and the magazine "Otdykh V Rossii".
According to the news agency "TASS", there are 85 positions in the ranking. The study took into account the views of representatives of the expert community – the specialists of the media group "Otdykh V Rossii", which includes the magazine on domestic and international tourism and information portals. The level of the development of the tourist business, turnover of tourist services, the popularity of the region among the Russians, the ecology of the region, the crime situation, the infrastructure development, the number of cultural facilities, and the popularity of the region as a tourist brand on the Internet were assessed.
The Federal Tourism Agency considers that the resorts of the Krasnodar region will be able to adequately replace international tours. In particular – Sochi – the city with the most prepared tourist infrastructure. In addition, according to the Russian Public Opinion Research Center, two-thirds of Russians support the government’s initiative on the development of domestic tourism.
