Abstract

By their nature, tourism activities cause certain effects on the environment. They may vary depending on the extent of tourist activities, and also on the factors contributing to their increase or decline. All these effects have led to the notion of “the impact of tourism activity on the environment”. Environment in general is affected by these actions, but this paper focuses mainly on the impact of tourism development on the urban environment. We divided these effects into four categories: economic effects, socio-cultural effects, political effects and effects on the natural environment, aiming to discover the implications for each of these categories. We consider this subject to be an actual one because the usage of nature and cultural values through tourism without discrimination and random in time and space can produce adverse effects on all components of the urban environment.
