In July 2008 it will be 100 years since the Tunguska meteorite fall in Evenkiya (the Krasnoyarsk Region of Russia). The world practice shows that making business on travel to anomalous zones and places of UFO landing yields a profit. This is why the local authorities have decided to take the advantage of the human interest to all mystical and unknown and turn the place of the meteorite fall into a popular travel centre. Taking into account that tens of international expeditions annually come to Evenkiya to solve the Tunguska mystery, there are all chances for development of profitable travel business in the region, and the 100th anniversary of the Tunguska phenomenon can become an effective impact for bringing the idea to life.
The authorities of the Krasnoyarsk Region have formed a special creative commission that will deal with the tourism development. It is planned to create an open-air museum, to lay an 80-kilometre route through bogs to taiga and the supposed epicentre of the meteorite fall. Also it is planned to construct helicopter sites so that foreign guests could visit the “anomaly” and to develop a special cultural programme with the local national cuisine, singing, dancing, etc.
