VISUALIZING ATTRACTIVE SPOTS FOR VISITORS AND THE MAKING OF THE TOURIST PLACES AT THE BLACK SEA COAST OF RUSSIA (THE END OF THE 19TH AND THE BEGINNING OF THE 20-TH CENTURIES)

The article deals with the process of emergence of tourism in Russia and focused on a visual pattern in the making of tourist places. Being an essential part of mass printed culture, travel guidebooks, along with travel literature and postcards, were in demand during the late imperial period. They were produced and replicated intensively and circulated widely. At the turn of the 19 – 20th centuries the Black Sea coast of Russia was evolving into a popular place for travel and a recreational destination. A set of images of attractive spots of this region, which were reproduced in Nikolai Lender’s guidebooks, as well as on postcards in 1880s - 1910s formed the empirical basis of this research.
