In the context of the financial and economic crisis affecting dynamics of development of all branches of economy of the republic essentially, enterprises which production is not related to the group of goods or services of first priority face especially vexed problems. Among them we may certainly mention tourist products traditionally providing the most significant tourist flows, as expenditures connected with them are excluded first of all from family budgets almost in all regions. The globally decreasing demand for tourist services leads to strained competition between the tourist centers for reduced tourist flows and to the flight of investments from the branch. Those regions get advantages where active work is conducted for development and promotion of new offers focused on satisfaction of varying preferences of tourists.
