The results of the grant competition for the implementation of projects for the development of domestic and inbound tourism in the Krasnoyarsk Krai have been summed up. As a result, 44 projects will receive support totaling 20 million rubles by the end of 2020.
The competition was held on the initiative of the Governor of the Krasnoyarsk Krai as part of supporting small and medium-sized tourist businesses.

‘I consider it important that the competition allows us to support not only those who have been working in tourism for a long time, but also those who open up new directions. For example, a mobile application will be created with a tourist audio performance in the historical part of Krasnoyarsk, a mother and child room will be arranged at the ‘Koza-Dereza ‘farm, and a rope town will appear in the area of the Karaulnaya Cave. Thanks to the competition, we will improve the quality of existing services and diversify the market for tourism products in the region,’ noted Yulia Verkhushina, head of the Krasnoyarsk Krai Tourism Agency.
