Abstract

In Bosnia and Herzegovina, there is an evident lack of research in the field of geodiversity valorization, which has resulted in the neglect of its scientific values, as well as insufficient development of geotourism. The aim of this paper is to valorize selected geomorphological sites in Blidinje Nature Park, considering their geotourism value. The applied methodological concept was created as a result of an analysis of existing methodological templates of geodiversity valorization, where the criteria for the assessment of basic, additional, conservation, and tourism value were combined. In this regard, one of the objectives of the paper is to contribute to a better understanding and application of methodological concepts of tourism valorization, especially within protected nature areas. During the research, 44 sites were singled out and, based on the results of the preliminary assessment, a list was created with a total of 23 sites that were valorized of which eight stood out with a higher than average mark. The results of this research indicate the potential for the development of the geotourism supply of Blidinje Nature Park, for which the basis should be the best-rated geomorphological sites.
