World Tourism Day was established by the UNWTO General Assembly and is celebrated with appropriate events on themes recommended by the UNWTO Executive Council.
. This year the celebration was devoted to sports tourism. In the context of revival of Unified Sports Classification System in Russia, its standards were included to the program.
Students and teachers of KIU competed in thoracic spine mobility, map scaling, knotcraft, sit-ups, making a camp fire and packing a backpack. No wonder that students of the Faculty of Service, Tourism and Food Service Management became the winners. Taking into account the growing importance of sports and tourism in the Republic of Tatarstan, our University does excellent job in preparing highly-qualified practice-oriented professionals in this field.
