Tourism is a sector which has a significant impact on the socio-economic development of territories. This type of national economic activity is characterized by a multiplier effect, generating incomes in related economic sectors. Among all types of tourism, the key role belongs to domestic tourism as the main source of income from tourist activities. Russian regions, domestic tourism is poorly developed due to imperfect infrastructure of the sector, lack of correlation between prices for tourism products and their quality, and lack of qualified personnel. In recent years, external factors are of particular significance for this sector; they include turbulent geopolitical situation in some countries, crisis phenomena in the economy, ban on travelling to popular foreign resorts for Russian citizens. The issues of domestic tourism development are reflected in works by D.R. Makeeva, E.V. Semenova, N.V. Maslova, L.I. Chernikova, G.R. Faizov. The purpose for the research is to study directions for domestic tourism development in the region taking into account the influence of external factors. The author uses scientific methods of comparison, generalization, analysis, synthesis, PEST-analysis, and the method of expert survey. Statistical data analysis helped reveal the reduction in the number of Russians’ tourist trips and a simultaneously increasing demand for hotel services in the country. It has been revealed that the currently available tourism potential helps develop a wide range of types of domestic tourism. The reasons hindering domestic tourism development are lack of tourism products in the region which would attract domestic tourists; inadequate tourist infrastructure and the population’s lack of funds for tourist trips. In conclusion, based PEST-analysis, the author specifies directions which ensure efficient domestic tourism development in the region, taking into account the economic and geopolitical situation
