Abstract

More than a third of a century ago, the International Convention on the Protection of the World Natural and Cultural Heritage was promulgated in Paris, dictated by fear, if not to say, by fear for the preservation of the objects of the material culture of human civilization. They are threatened not so much by natural disasters, natural aging - inevitably a devastating course of time. And not even acts of vandalism or negligence of individual, in general, single unconscious members of society. And much more serious, more destructive forces are a changing mass consciousness in a changing world. Culture is the fundamental basis for the process of development, preservation, strengthening of independence, sovereignty and identity of the people. The identity of the ways of the historical evolution of culture and tourism predetermined the community of new methods of approach to their further development. In most countries of the world there is a process of democratization of culture and tourism, which form an integral part of society. The relevance of the topic is determined by the fact that integration in the pan-European and world cultural processes is necessary, incl. the development of cultural tourism as one of the most promising areas of social and economic cooperation.

More than a third of a century ago, the International Convention on the Protection of the World Natural and Cultural Heritage was promulgated in Paris, dictated by fear, if not to say, by fear for the preservation of the objects of the material culture of human civilization. They are threatened not so much by natural disasters, natural aging - inevitably a devastating course of time. And not even acts of vandalism or negligence of individual, in general, single unconscious members of society. And much more serious, more destructive forces are a changing mass consciousness in a changing world. Culture is the fundamental basis for the process of development, preservation, strengthening of independence, sovereignty and identity of the people. The identity of the ways of the historical evolution of culture and tourism predetermined the community of new methods of approach to their further development. In most countries of the world there is a process of democratization of culture and tourism, which form an integral part of society. The relevance of the topic is determined by the fact that integration in the pan-European and world cultural processes is necessary, incl. the development of cultural tourism as one of the most promising areas of social and economic cooperation.
