About New Year’s tales for tourists big and small

New Year is traditionally a family holiday, and tourists often expect to visit their children “visiting a fairy tale” for the winter holidays. For those planning a trip like this, TURPROM offers instructions on a fairytale map of Russia: how to go to visit Santa Claus? Where is the Snow Maiden’s tower located?

Archaeological tourism

Archaeological tourism is a trip as part of expeditions of professional archaeologists and historians to conduct excavations and other scientific studies. Almost every person with normal health and ready for a week or more to live in a tent can make such a trip. As a reward, a voluntary assistant to archaeologists receives a truly unforgettable experience of touching the secrets of antiquity. In addition, you can bring home quite tangible artifacts that do not need to be handed over to the museum due to the lack of their historical value.

Archaeological tourism in Ukraine gained great popularity back in the days of the Soviet Union. In those days, the involvement of volunteers who were not professional archaeologists in the expedition was widely practiced. This was due to the lack of staff for manual labor in large areas and complex facilities.
