Abstract

The paper presents selected problems of development of tourism within the areas neighbouring upon the Polish eastern border. Borders determine the nature of the tourist space and its elements that will develop in frontier regions. First of all the borders constitute spatial barriers for tourism development and movement. On the other hand they often coincide with valuable natural landscapes and a numerous historical and cultural attractions. In the paper the influence of the most important elements on tourist attractiveness of a border-adjacent area are presented in the case of eastern border area of Poland. Tourism, in the vicinity of eastern boundaries of Poland, is generally characterised by poor tourism-related development and lack of tourist traditions, as well as low degree of recognition as tourist destination. – (BJ)
