A new book,as print version and eBook, has been published: Compiled and edited by the Rector of Russian Economic University, Osmk Branch, prof. Sergey Metelev, and assoc. prof. Svetlana Efimova, its chapters, all written by university scientists, focus on tourism development in Siberia and, in particular, the Omsk Region.
Scientifically exact and well-founded, the authors paint a “real vision” of tourism development of Siberia and Omsk region. This book contains a vision – but a realistic one – which could be reached by some steps. Based on an internal brainstorming at this university and on a conference in April 2013, the tasks are described. The objective is the development of tourism – a job machine, and this in a region which offers more than one thinks.
The contributors of the book offer to surf in the nature which is beautiful in its own way. The variety of landscapes and climatic conditions provides the possibility to develop different types of tourisms, depending on the purpose of the travel. As such, the book covers such fields as rural, business, event, cultural, educational, religious, recreational, active, medical-health and ecological tourisms.
The book hs been published in a difficult Russian-European time, but authors and the publisher think, there will be a time „after the sanctions“, there will also be guaranteed investment, and Russia can regain a place among the tourism destinations – in particular the relevant part of Siberia with a good infrastructure and a very interesting nature. The book pleads, altogether, for a sustainable tourism. After all, this might be one of the very first books in favor of a regional tourism development in Russia.
