Kulturowe szlaki turystyczne – próba klasyfikacji oraz postulaty w zakresie ich tworzenia i funkcjonowania
CULTURAL TOURISM ROUTES – CLASSIFICATION ATTEMPT AND REQUIREMENTS FOR THEIR CREATION AND FUNCTIONING
Languages of publication
The article discusses the subject from Polish professional literature relatively well-described and gradually widely known within professional circles, that is ‘theme tourist routes which use historic and cultural buildings and themes. Considering earlier publications referring to the subject of tourist routes in general [e.g. Kruczek 2007, Szewczyk 2008] and to cultural tourist routes in particular [Mikos v. Rohrscheidt 2008], it is not necessary to repeat the information about the routes and their descriptions. Therefore, the author – apart from presenting the idea of cultural routes in the perspective of Polish and foreign professional literature – focuses reader’s attention on two issues. They are both vital for proper functioning and development of the cultural tourist routes offer in Poland. Moreover, the issues can especially influence the extent to which these products are used by tourism organizers and individual tourists. The first issue regards proper classification of cultural tourist routes, and the problem of consequent use of correct terminology in professional literature, information materials and in setting up the trails. The second one is a set of requirements for creating new and developing the existing cultural tourist routes in Poland.
