Abstract

In this paper, the tourist resources of the city of Niš were analyzed. The primary objective of the analysis is to examine the possibilities of developing Niš as a urban tourist destination. On the tourist map of the Republic of Serbia, the main admiNištrative centers Belgrade and Novi Sad represent built urban destinations, visited by a large number of foreign tourists. On the other hand, Niš as a city with rich culture and history as well as high quality tourist resources, is still not sufficiently recognized as a urban destination. Accordingly, the analysis of the tourist resources of the city of Niš represents the basis for implementing guidelines for its future development as a urban destination.
