The experience of recent years shows that geotourism in post-mining objects has got a large development potential due to, among others, moving away from the typical museums to modern tourism products much more engaging visitors and the transition from the idea of 3S (sun, sand, sea) for 3E (experiment, excitement, education) and 4H (heritage, handicraft, habitat, history). In the article the specifics of the tourism product in projects related to the adaptation and using of post-mining objects and sites were presented. The article presents an assessment of the possibility of building a branded tourist product based on the relics of the mining industry in the context of the development and implementation of subsequent phases of the project consisting in making these relics available to tourists. The examples of completed projects, among others, in Poland and Germany were used. The division of the primary and secondary value of the geotourist project and the activities affecting the increase of these values were proposed. The article also raises issues of variation in demand for mining heritage products and the economic viability of such projects, as well as the recommendations for future investor in the post-mining tourism’ venture were specified.

The turn of the 20th and 21st c. was marked by the development of experience economy, in which the basic commodities are not specific products, but the customers’ emotions, impressions and experiences. Tourism has always been a particular “holiday experience industry”. In recent years, however, the importance of the conscious creation of emotional tourism products has become even greater; we may observe continuous efforts to multiply and intensify tourism experience. The key activities to achieve this goal include transforming tourism infrastructure into unique tourism attractions, enlarging traditional services/service packages by elements providing additional emotions and satisfaction, using modern technologies in order to add virtual entities to real tourism space (augmented reality), as well as to conveniently record tourism experience and share it with the public
Adequate accommodation infrastucture is on of the basic conditions for sustainable tourism development. In order to improve accommodation infrastructure, particular addressing the problem of a large share of private accommodation in total infrastucture, it is proposed to transform these capacities indo condo model, diffused and integral hotels. Another major problem in tourism development in Montenegro is not an adequate structure of emissive markets, more precisely dominance of 2 markets. In order to improve emissive market infracture it is necessary to focus primarly on West European and Scandinavian market. Improving the situation of the mentioned problems would significaly affect the sustainable development of tourism in Montenegro.
, the Audi museum mobile and the
region. The centre offers specific touristproducts based on particular experienc-
es, which may be included in industrial tourism. The facilities in the Audi Forum
Ingolstadt are tourist assets in themselves; they may also be seen as tourist infra-
structure. It is also a place where numerous events are held, attracting tourists.
The Audi Forum Ingolstadt is an example of a multifunctional centre with dis-
tinctive tourist functions, situated on the premises of a large modern car factory.
In an increasingly competitive tourist market, wine and enogastronomy are becoming key elements in the development of tourist products in regions that cultivate grapevines, in Slovenia and internationally. It has been claimed that no kind of tourism can develop in regions without wine; however, from today’s perspective, this claim seems an exaggeration. Nevertheless, enogastronomy is an integral part of many contemporary tourist products. As such, it combines tradition, history and heritage and also improves the recognisability of a given destination on which modern wine tourism products rest. On a global scale, wine tourism is growing, and the forecast for the future is likewise promising.
The essence of a wine tourism product is to connect food and wine, i.e. enogastronomic or culinary experiences, and to follow new trends. The trend is to consolidate this segment of tourism services, in particular through leisure activities and relaxation at the destination of choice. Food and wine thus become part of the cultural experience of the visited destination and equal the experience of visiting a museum or a concert or can be an equal component of such a package.
The country image tends to be a crucial element for supporting national products on foreign markets. This is also a case for tourist products. The Germany brand is one of the most powerful brands across the world. However, it seems, as highlighted in the research hypothesis, that in the case of tourism its impact on the Poles is not as strong as in the case of numerous other economic spheres. The poll research conducted on a selected group of respondents revealed the grounds for the hypothesis stated. Respondents evaluated relatively poorly both the attractiveness of Germany as well as their urge to visit that country compared to other European countries, they also rated poorly the selected highlights of the country. Another barrier related to perceived attractiveness of Germany is a not entirely positive stereotype of German people. The results reveal the need for changes of it, which are possible in the light of better ratings given by persons who previously visited Germany.
The dynamism of the tourism phenomenon in relation to interconditioning with the local administrative environment, through the generated effects, can constitute an element of favorability of the socio-economic development of community. At the same time, tourism development also generates many problems for host communities. Thus, the policy developed by the local public administration regarding the tourism phenomenon regards the creation and maintenance of a competitive space for the involved actors (residents, tourists, institutions of public and private administration) in order to manage and supply profitable tourist products in a socio-economic context sustainable. Analyzing the perception and attitude of the residents of Moroieni, Dâmbovița, and the tourists present in this area, the paper presents the results of a sociological research which establishes the role and involvement of the local public administration in the tourism phenomenon.
The paper deals with the idea of destination competitiveness and its relations with competitiveness of spatial tourism products and competitiveness of entities catering tourism in the region. The case study method is used in the paper and the example of Industrial Monuments Route of the Silesian Province is analysed. The Route is a tourist product which presents the major and most interesting industrial facilities in the Silesian Region in terms of tourist, historic and architectonic values. The creation of the new spatial product - the Route by the regional authority - enhanced competitiveness of the Province as the image was improved, as well as a competitive advantage of operators of attractions within the Route was built. Some difficulties and challenges of such a way of enhancing destination competitiveness are discussed in the text.
Croatia is a land endowed with rich and diversified natural and cultural tourist resources. Traveling around Croatia, I was stunned by its beauty. However, I noticed that there were few Chinese tourists in Croatia. How can we bring more Chinese tourists to Croatia? How can we make them happy and comfortable in Croatia? And, at the same time, how can we avoid polluting this tract of pure land? Based on first-hand research work, I make a SWOT analysis of the Chinese tourist source market of Croatia and put forward related countermeasures from the perspective of a native Chinese. The positioning of tourism in Croatia should be ingeniously packaged. I recommend developing diversified and specialized tourist products, various marketing and promotional activities, simple and flexible visa policies and regulations, and other related measures to further explore the Chinese tourist source market of Croatia.
