Like many of the state-run industries of the former Soviet Union, the tourism industry is in disarray and often appears to be near collapse. Historic centers like Novgorod have been particularly hard hit by this collapse as the maintenance and the very survival of the town's heritage is dependent on income generated both directly and indirectly from tourism.This paper examines some of the problems connected with heritage tourism that Novgorod currently faces. In doing so, it raises more questions that it can answer, perhaps inevitably given the uncertainty that permeates most aspects of life in Russia today. © 1994 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
