Subject. This article discusses the issues and problems related to international tourism and Russian inbound tourism.
Objectives. The article aims to identify current trends in international tourism and summarize best international practices. The article is also aimed at finding ways to address the problems of inbound tourism development in Russia.
Methods. For the study, I used the methods of comparative analysis, synthesis, generalization, classification, grouping, and the method of index numbers.
Results. The article describes the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on international tourism, its individual sectors (rural tourism), as well as countries. It summarizes the experience of the development of international tourism in advanced countries and highlights the problems of inbound tourism in Russia and the ways to solve them.
