Abstract

As a form of protected natural heritage, national parks have an important attraction role in tourism, as one of the leading world economic businesses. It is the planning itself of the concept, role and significance of a natural area which have a special importance in current national parks organisation. The goal of this paper is to note the importance of proper management of national parks by means of improvement of tourist results, while simultaneously improving the preservation of the environment. With regard to the analysis of the model of organisation of two coastal and island Mediterranean region national parks, located in two European Union countries, the hypothesis reads: tourist valorisation of Croatian national parks lags behind the organisation and positioning of the national leading Mediterranean destinations.The research opens new questions, but also offers qualitative solutions for the purposes of the best possible positioning and valorisation of sustainable tourism in protected areas.
