All these changes are typical of the Kaliningrad region as one of its most profitable tourism directions, an inbound international one, started developing only in the middle of the 1990-s. This research is aimed at studying shifts in the region’s tourism industry in the frameworks of its major sectors: accommodation sector, intermediary services’ sector (tourist companies) and HoReCa sector. The research results reflecting the dynamics of these tourism components are presented in tables and diagrams.
