Abstract

For tourism is often said to have "power" to foster economic development. Looking at examples of regions where tourism is the dominant industry, which recorded economic comparative advantages compared to regions that do not develop tourism, it is clear why he speaks about tourism as a development catalyst. Correspondence analysis of the perceptions of a sample of 249 local residents from the area of Fruška Gora (Vojvodina), showed that residents have a generally positive attitude towards the development of tourism with respect to its economic aspects, and desk research has shown justification of positive attitudes, which confirmed the main hypothesis. It has come to the conclusion that the activation of tourist attractions would bring revenue, to zhe locals, by including a number of production and service activities.
