Abstract

SUMMARY

In the modern world and in international tourism, historic towns have become a subject of intense interest for tourism experts and for their theoretical works. They have also become centres which attract masses of tourists. Therefore, the way these towns are interpreted in tourism may be a significant source of income for the local population. Tourism interest in these towns has been spontaneous, as a result of the constant changes in tourists' behaviour globally, and as a result of changes in the motivation of potential tourists to visit a tourism destination. Ways to handle these changes and how to interpret the historic and cultural heritage in terms of tourism are interesting questions that provide the topic of this paper.

Keywords

historic town, cultural and historic identity of towns, tourism interpretation of historic towns
