EntryAt its core travelling — multifunctional phenomenon. He actively affects people’s lives, the organization of their work and leisure, and consequently — the economic and social development.In this sense, tourism — a sphere of human activity associated with travel and travel of people , performs a number of functions of political, economic, cultural , which are shown as at the individual level and at the level of society as a whole .
One of the important functions of travelling — improving or recreational ((Latin) — recovery) . In the literature this function determine how reproductive, reproductive ie one that allows you to restore the strength and internal reserves person spent in the course of work, and when the current domestic duties. From a tourist point of view directly as a consumer product tour is improving function of tourism is a priority. Moreover, the health effect on differentiated treatment (known since ancient times) and preventive (characteristic of most modern forms of recreation and tourism). Tourism as a kind of recreation, an outdoor activity promotes human health, restore its health and thus — through the restoration of the workforce — improve the productivity of social labor.

The political function of tourism is reflected in the fact that he got the name of public diplomacy. In addition, the company actively communicates with the world by means of tourism, is becoming more open, freely integrated into the world community. Tourist offer, is largely based on the climatic resources depends on the environmental situation in the country. Last exerts its influence on the types of tourism activities that are not directly connected with the natural environment, as for modern tourists’ environmental quality, environmental safety is the primary criterion for deciding on travel. As the industry , for which nature acts not only as a raw material for the manufacture of the product , but also of the derivative terms own existence , tourism, use of natural resources , can also serve as a means to maintain and restore through the organization of various forms of nature -informative , educational and nature- conservation tourist activity . This reflects the environment (environmental) function of tourism. Modern tourism has an impact on environmental policy. They are trying to save valuable recreational resources through special legislation, the creation of a network of national parks, natural and cultural reserves and other protected areas and objects. Tourism is increased environmental awareness of the population, improving the overall nature- protective state of the region and the country.

The latter results in economic and tourism economic function in society. From the standpoint of economic and tourism economic separated into a separate branch of the economy, capable of bringing high profits, actively promote the economic development of society.

Duration of the trip is not so important. Even one or two weeks in an unusual place help a person «rejuvenate».
Besides the fact that traveling abroad is expanding our horizons, they also make us smarter and develop creative abilities. This is due to the planning and organization of travel, to analyzing the situations that can happen to us in an unfamiliar area.
