From 2022, regions will be able to receive subsidies for projects to create an attractive tourist environment in the centers of historic cities. The rules for the provision of such state support within the framework of the national project “Tourism and the hospitality industry” were approved by the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Applicants for the subsidy must prepare a draft of the so-called tourist code of the city center – a single space with attractions, pedestrian zones, fairs, photo zones and observation decks, a modern navigation system and infrastructure for people with disabilities.

Projects developed for cities with a population of 5 thousand to 2 million people are accepted for consideration. Moreover, the project itself should cover an area of ​​up to 100 hectares.

The winners of the competition will be determined by Rosturizm. The average subsidy for each project will be about 250 million rubles.

It is planned that with the help of federal funds by 2025 a single attractive cultural and historical space will be created in 52 cities of Russia.

The document will be published.
