On the one hand, we expect that economic constraints limit spending by households on vacation, especially if we are talking about foreign travel. However, during the high labor activity paired with economy and a more rational management of the budget lead to increased demand for all kinds of recreation, especially recreational. Against this background — there is huge potential for the Russian domestic tourism. And this requires not only an active position of the state but also market participants themselves".
