Both new and existing domestic routes will be able to apply for this status. The selection will be carried out by an expert council, which will include representatives of Rostourism, tourist business and non-profit organizations in the field of culture, history, science, local history and art history.

It is noted that the key condition for obtaining the title of a national route is compliance with several criteria. One of them is perspective. It is understood that the route will ensure an increase in tourist flow to the region by at least 25 percent compared to the previous year.

Another criterion is the route's recognition in Russian and foreign media, as well as in social networks. In addition, there must be at least one significant object on the territory. For example, a monument from the UNESCO list.

Earlier, on December 2, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko called for the development of a tourist route “Christian Crimea”. In addition, he pointed out the need to improve affordable and comfortable accommodation facilities, organize transport accessibility for tourists and pilgrims, and create new tourist programs.
