Currently, creative tourism is one of the most promising, but slowly developed segment of the tourism market. Throughout the world, there has been an increase in non-traditional forms of tourism. At the same time, there is an increase in the individualization of consumers and an increase in the diversity of preferences, due to which the process of developing a tourist product becomes more and more necessary and more complex. However, despite the urgency, there is insufficient knowledge of the issues related to the development of tourism markets in the creative tourism market, especially in Russia, which confirms the relevance of the study.
