The article considers the peculiarities of status and organization of outbound tourism and reception of tourists in Bashkortostan. This region is not well-known among the foreign tourists. Bashkortostan Regional Council of Trade Unions received a certain number of vouchers for the republic through "Intourist". The number of vouchers given to the Republic increased from 800 vouchers in the 60s up to 5000 in the 80s, but they could provide recreation abroad only for 0.1% of the population. Foreign tourists came in Bashkortostan within the framework of friendly relations between Ufa and Galle District of the GDR. As part of these relations a two-way exchange of delegations of party workers, leaders of manufacture, science and culture was implemented, tourism trips of workers' representatives were organized, cooperation in the newspapers, radio and television were carried out, the exchange exhibitions and photo-windows about the development of the national economy and culture, etc. were organized. The trains of Friendship became popular way of cooperation. International tourism in the Soviet period was considered as one of the most important forms of international education of young people and workers.

Keywords: “Intourist”, friendly relations with the cities of the socialist countries, two-way exchange of delegations, train of Friendship.
