"Promotion and promotion of tourism and resort potential play an important role in increasing the tourist flow and development of tourism. Unfortunately, there was still insufficient information on tourist opportunities in the Odessa region.

Also, negotiations with hotels in Odessa on the placement of catalogs at the reception are ongoing.
