Toward understanding tourist landscape. a comparative study of locals’ and visitors’ perception in selected destinations in Poland and Greece

groupings. Obviously, this is a simplified and generalized conceptualization of the process of tourism development, leading to the creation of tourist landscapes. The latter must always be contextualized in their unique settings, informed by both natural/physical and anthropogenic factors, such as the local communities, landscape physiognomy and various other geographical particularities, in the broader context of the global tourism space/ system (e.g. Włodarczyk 2009b ). Furthermore, the processes indicated in this model are not just one-way; as is the case in

Characteristics of daily water temperature fluctuations in lake kierskie (West Poland)

selected water gauge stations several years ago. The paper is the first to present results of such monitoring in reference to Lake Kierskie ( Fig. 1 ), where the test measurement sensor is located. Fig. 1 Study site location. On the left: measurement site (limnimetric column and water gauge). One of the greatest modern threats for lake ecosystems is the impact of climatic change, as reflected in long-term records of the course of water temperature. In a large majority of papers discussing the issue, an increase in water temperature is evident ( Naumenko et al

Use of the Concept Of ‘Product’ to Analyze the Relationships Between Tourism and Physical Culture

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to present opportunities for research which show the common ground between tourism and physical culture using approaches and methods worked out and applied in economics. Attention has been concentrated on the category of ‘product’, treated here as a theoretical concept by means of which it is possible to present a structure of tourism trip. This will include the part that refers to those values and human activities related to physical culture. An attempt to identify the social perception of the attributes that describe a tourism trip was made by an empirical study using conjoint analysis on students in higher education in Kraków. The results show that those who participate in tourism enriched by physical activity, prefer trips saturated with attributes such as the required level of courage, the testing of psychological and physical abilities, rivalry with others or nature, an element of adventure, a high level of physical activity, access to sports and leisure facilities, and contact with nature. But at the same time they prefer a low level of risk to health or life. It was noted, however, that related to the latter female and male preferences vary.
