Climate and weather in Buryatia
It is not for nothing that Buryatia is called a solar republic — a bright sun shines here 300 days a year. According to this indicator, Buryatia is not inferior, and sometimes surpasses the southern regions of Russia. Let's go sunbathing!
The basis for the development of tourism in the Republic of Buryatia is natural recreational resources, the most valuable of which is Lake Baikal (. aikaltravel.u).
Baikal is one of the leaders in the development of ecotourism, the fifth most attractive region of Russia for foreign tourists.
The main types of tourism are health-improving, cultural, ecological, adventure, rural, religious. Active types of tourism are developing: rock climbing, freeriding, snowkiting and kitesurfing, mountain biking, mountain skiing, mass ascents to the highest point of the Eastern Sayan Mountains - Mount Munku-Sardyk. Popular photography, hiking, water, horseback riding, mountain and bike tours. Today, tourist organizations of the republic are ready to present a wide range of excursion tours within the framework of the transboundary routes "Tea Way", "Eastern Ring", "Trans-Siberian Express", "Baikal - Khubsugul - the great lakes of Asia".
The attention of tourists is attracted by the national holidays Sagaalgan and Surkharban, within which folklore festivals, sports competitions, religious and cultural events are held.
Since 2003, all the main indicators of the tourism sector have a positive trend. During the period from 2003 to 2007 the tourist flow to Buryatia increased by 60%. In 2007, according to statistics, Buryatia was visited by 229.3 thousand tourists, including 19 thousand foreign tourists from 60 countries of the world (Mongolia, China, Germany, USA, etc.). The growth rate of arrivals was 40%. The Unified Federal Register of Tour Operators from the Republic of Buryatia includes 24 travel companies. There are 383 collective tourist accommodation facilities on the territory of the republic, including 20 sanatorium-resort institutions and 120 guest houses. In educational institutions of Buryatia, specialists for the tourism sector are trained in 16 specialties.
In the Program of socio-economic development of the Republic of Buryatia for 2008–2010. and for the period up to 2017, tourism is recognized as one of the strategic directions of the economy. Today it is already obvious that in connection with the protection of Lake Baikal, the development of all types of industry in Buryatia is limited and will probably be limited even more in the future, therefore, unlike the vast majority of other regions of Russia, the development of tourism for Buryatia is a vital way of economic development.
The mechanism for the formation of a modern tourist and recreational complex on the territory of the republic is the cluster approach. The core of the cluster and a tool for stimulating regional economic growth is a special economic zone of a tourist and recreational type, which is being created in the Pribaikalsky region. In accordance with the concept of the TR SEZ in Buryatia, the emerging zone encompasses five destinations, which, mutually complementing each other, form an integrated all-season tourist product: the fishing village "Turka", the resort "Peski", the medical and SPA resort "Goryachinsk", ski resorts "Mountain Bull (Summit 1771)", "Bezymyannaya Bay".
But in addition to these specially equipped areas, it is planned to develop regional tourist zones in 7 cluster territories, which will make it possible to spatially diversify the tourist offer and involve areas that are not included in the SEZ TR into the tourist turnover. On each territory there are plots from 100 to 800 hectares, on which modern all-season resorts will be created and places of mass recreation will be improved.
For these purposes, the republic is improving the regulatory framework for the creation of regional tourist zones, for the organization of places of mass recreation in the Central ecological zone of the BNT and a favorable investment climate. Undoubtedly, the introduction of the concept of “special economic zones of the regional level” into the Federal Law “On Special Economic Zones in the Russian Federation” will allow at the regional level to carry out legal regulation of the creation, functioning and management of regional zones.
At the expense of budget funds, roads will be reconstructed along the shores of the lake. Baikal, power lines, local airports, construction of berths, treatment facilities. The creation of the SEZ infrastructure will improve the transport accessibility of local villages, improve power supply to local consumers and increase employment. And in these matters, the full support of the federal center is required.
The government of the republic is taking measures of state support for investment projects in the creation of tourist infrastructure. During the construction of hotels, entertainment and leisure facilities, state support will be provided in terms of preferential taxation, subsidies for the repayment of bank loans, and a reduction in land tax. Substantial support is planned in the training and professional development of personnel in the hotel and restaurant business. In order to attract tourists to Buryatia, in 2009 a new Internet portal "Tourism and recreation in Buryatia" will be launched in 5 languages, an advertising campaign is planned in specialized tourist publications, including foreign ones, and participation in tourist exhibitions.
