Kušen, Eduard (2010)

Types: Article
Subjects: tourism attraction; inventory of tourism attractions; classification of tourism attraction; evaluation of tourism attractions; Cadastre/Atlas of Tourism Attractions
Although tourism attractions are a basic resource for long term tourism developments, they are not given the proper attention, both, theoretical and practical. Therefore, rare studies of tourism attractions, especially those with the ambition of creating a functional system of tourism attractions, attract special attention. The aim of this paper is to present a new system of tourism attractions. This new system is based on the review of published research on tourism attractions, particularly those dealing with their definitions, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, it is the result of the research agenda with an aim to propose functional classification of tourism attractions and test it through the series of case studies. This newly proposed system provides a number of novel features: it has developed an innovative tourism system in part dealing with the tourist destination (with an emphasis on tourism attractions); it ensures the functionality of their internal attraction structure, but also with all aspects of the wider tourism system; it is useful tool for many processes in the tourism theory and practice; it contains a functional classification of tourism attractions and a method of determining their characteristics; it offers a three-dimensional model showing the internal connection between components of this system. All these features are overshadowed by its capabilities to serve as the basis for creating a Tourism Cadastre, initially and, especially, the Cadastre of tourism attractions.
