The famous project “Fairytale Map of Russia” will take part in the developing of culinary tourism in the country. It will combine not only interesting fairytale routes, but offers the information dedicated to Russian traditional food. The idea will be useful for gourmet tourists.
One of the destinations included in the separately created “Delicious Map of Russia” will be the Yaroslavl region – the birthplace of two kinds of cheese. In addition to well-recognized brands, such as Tula with its famous gingerbread, the organizers plan to develop less popular culinary areas. For example, Kamyshin pretends to be a watermelon capital of Russia, and Pskov can be named the place of catching the most tasty smelt.
The "Fairytale Map of Russia", started in November 2010, aims to combine all available information on museums, estates and residences of all the heroes of Russian folk tales.
