Abstract

The Tuapse region of Russia has great potential appeal for tourists yet experiences less tourism than nearby regions. The purpose of this project was to evaluate tourism in the Tuapse region compared to nearby regions on the Black Sea coast. We collaborated with the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation to visit regions of interest to conduct surveys of tourists, interviews of business administrators, and to make observations about the places visited. From the results of this data, we organized our findings in a SWOT analysis to present ideas for increasing tourism in the Tuapse region.
