project "Golden Ring of Siberia", uniting all 10 Siberian regions, was
developed by our Tomsk branch of the Russian Geographical Society,
laying a tourist route of 10 thousand kilometers. The time has come to

tourist infrastructure, creating comfortable conditions for travelers,

for", –Zhvachkin is quoted as saying.
