The cultural tourism covers a wide range of interdependent activities, connected with other economic branches, that play a major role in the developing tourism industry.
The people’s increasing amount of leisure time, the tourists’ changing interest and the increasing life expectancy help the cultural tourism gain popularity faster then other tourism segments. Further, the cultural tourism plays a significant role in the recovery of some districts, zones, localities or towns.
