This article analyzes positions of Russia in world tourist space on the basis of the tourism and travel competitiveness rating provided by the World Economic Forum. At the heart of rating lies The Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI) calculated on the basis of fourteen indicators grouped in four subindexes.
