маскалізацыя[2][3][4][5] або расеізацыя[6][7][8] — мэтанакіраваная палітыка сьвядомага адрыву беларускага народу ад гістарычных традыцыяў, роднай культуры і мовы і насаджэньня расейскай мовы і культуры[9]. Беларускі купал-баня (грэцкі крыж) і расейская цыбуліна (маскоўскі крыж) Па актывізацыі рэлігійнага жыцьця ў 1990-я гады масавы характар набылі перабудовы помнікаў сакральнай архітэктуры, якія знаходзяцца ў валоданьні Беларускага экзархату Маскоўскага патрыярхату. Гэтыя перабудовы выконваюцца з парушэньнем дзейнага заканадаўства ў сфэры аховы помнікаў і характарызуюцца мэтанакіраваным насаджэньнем пазалочаных купалоў-цыбулінаў — сымбаляў расейскай культавай архітэктуры[10], зьмяненьнем аўтэнтычнага выгляду асобных архітэктурных элемэнтаў, выкарыстаньнем недапушчальных пры рэстаўрацыі будаўнічых матэрыялаў і мэтодык. Архітэктар-рэстаўратар Уладзімер Папруга паказвае на тое, што мэтай маскоўскіх перабудоваў беларускіх цэркваў зьяўляецца зьнішчэньне культурных асаблівасьцяў Беларусі[11]: https://be-tarask.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A1%D1%8C%D0%BF%D1%96%D1%81_%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%BC%D0%BD%D1%96%D0%BA%D0%B0%D1%9E_%D0%B3%D1%96%D1%81%D1%82%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%8B%D1%96_%D1%96_%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%85%D1%96%D1%82%D1%8D%D0%BA%D1%82%D1%83%D1%80%D1%8B_%D0%91%D0%B5%D0%BB%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%83%D1%81%D1%96,_%D0%B7%D1%80%D1%83%D0%B9%D0%BD%D0%B0%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%BD%D1%8B%D1%85_%D0%9C%D0%B0%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%BE%D1%9E%D1%81%D0%BA%D1%96%D0%BC_%D0%BF%D0%B0%D1%82%D1%80%D1%8B%D1%8F%D1%80%D1%85%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%B0%D0%BC

I m a bit disappointed u didn't mention Iceland kicked out IMF, because i personally respect them for that! I can't belive u didn't say a word about their referendum. And that was the main reason why their economy started growing again! Not because WOW Air or anything else..People said NO to globalists and took their country back! i really like this channel, but this video is not good at all.. greetings from Serbia

Tourism saved Iceland after the 2008 financial crisis, but was about to drown us 10 years later. Then came the Coronavirus pandemic - we suddenly have our country back! True, a lot of investors went bananas, there was a gold rush in the hotel and tourism industry and many of them will go under. Well, if you fly high you have far to fall. The entire world is in for a rough and uncertain ride for the next couple of years. We will never go completely "back to normal" again, which will probably count as a good thing in a decade or so. Let's hope for a more moderate, well, everything, when the the storm blows over...

I believe that what hurt Iceland's growth in the last year is that all these tourists came there on cheap flights expecting a great budget friendly trip. When they got to Iceland, they were paying $100 USD taxi rides from the airport into town, $25 for a meal at McDonald's or its equivalent "cheap" restaurant, and hundreds of dollars for lodging. The word quickly spread about how super expensive Iceland actually is once you're there, and that resulted in people deciding to forgo visiting Iceland and instead just going directly to cheaper options in Europe.

Most people aren't really broken up about investment bankers being out of work, and having to work minimum wage. Might have something to do with them having caused a global financial crisis that affected the rest of us. If that had been hotel receptionists' fault, we'd be pissed off at them, instead.

the perfect example of tourism destroying a spot...well, there are PLENTY of them, but Mount Fuji is prolly the most recognisable. another one more personal, is natural bridge in Virginia...simply because it has posted all over the gift shop/paid admission site, right before the restaurant and highway sized roads leading through the broken down cave "a truly natural experience..."...

A potential reason why there was such a low drop in visitors between April 2018 and April 2019 could be because due to CCP not hosting EVE Fanfest in Iceland in April 2019 like they do nearly every other April. Not sure of the figures of EVE Fanfest attendees, but it's probably not insignificant. With EVE Fanfest being back in Reykjavik in April 2020, it'll be interesting to see if the visitor figures increase next April.
