An Attempt for Determination and Limitation of Tourist Locations in Central Northern Bulgaria

Mariela Nekova


The tourist region determination in Bulgaria was set up in the 1960s. There has been a new trend of interest in the tourist regions. The concept of tourist location, which was implemented in the very first tourist region determinations in our country, still has its popularity; it is a part of the modern geographic research tools of tourism. The leading approach in the determination of tourist locations is associated with our idea of the location as a relatively small area of neighbouring settlements, or area, where tourist activity is highly concentrated. In this research 10 tourist locations have been identified: Teteven-Ribaritsa, Troyan, Apriltsi, Lovech, Gabrovo, Tryavna-Dryanovo, Veliko Tarnovo-Arbanasi, Elena, Pleven, Ruse. These tourist locations can be distinguished by territory according to 10 economic and geographic criteria.
