"South Ural - The Great Silk Road": New Tourism Opportunities


The production and exchange of produced (extracted) goods is a cornerstone and an indicator of the development of civilizations. Historically the systems of transport links between manufacturers and consumers in a variety of historical eras are no different from the formation of modern logistics: the emergence of a new production - the organization of information and advertising promotion by "scouts" and pioneers (Marco Polo, Afanasy Nikitin) - the organization of the transportation of goods, taking into account feed for pack animals, water, landscapes, weather conditions and seasons, etc. Over time, the nomenclature of goods and information about them had been growing, so a network of interconnected intercontinental and regional roads and transshipment points on them was formed from individual paths, from which large shopping centers were often gradually formed. Goods from the Southern Ural in all eras and with all technological structures were of interest for international trade within the framework of the system with the code name "The Great Silk Road".
