TULA, November 16. /TASS/. The Tula region will receive 37 mln rubles (roughly $570,000) of federal funds in 2017 to implement the Russian Manors project according to the program on the development of domestic and inbound tourism, regional Minister of Culture Tatiana Rybkina told TASS.
“The program aims to support the investors who build tourist facilities, hotels, restaurants and roads needed to develop tourism infrastructure and provide comfort to tourists,” Rybkina said.
The project involves federal and private funds, five percent of the funds are allocated by the regional budget. The funds are allocated on the three-to-one principle: one ruble is provided by the budget for each three rubles committed by private investors.
The funds will be used to develop infrastructure in the Venevsky district, the Golden City complex in particular. Several manors of great historical and cultural importance are located in the Venevsky region including those of Nadezhda von Meck, the Volkonsky-Campanari family as well as some others. Nadezhda von Meck (1831-1894) was a Russian business woman and a patron of the arts. She is best known for her artistic relationship with the great Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky whom she financially supported.
French tourist inflow to the Tula manors is expected given bilateral Russian-French Years of Culture, Rybkina told TASS earlier.
A Russian Manors tourist route is being currently developed in order to provide tourists with an opportunity to visit famous manors of the Tula region. The manors of Ivan Turgenev, Leo Tolstoy, Vasily Polenov and Andrei Bolotov have already been included in the route.
