Dark tourism is a definition encompassing the visiting of places associated with death, torture, battlefields, places where famous people died, cemeteries and exhibitions showing cadavers. This was always a part of culture, although recently there has been an increased interest of tourists and scientists. It combines not only travel and death but is often used ideologically. Also of interest are the various forms of tourism which are involved with death and the motivations of the tourists who are fascinated by them. Both of them are largely generated by the prevailing general culture - especially by the mass media - whereby death has become an element of consumption and another attraction on the tourism market.
