In spite of numerous challenges and threats faced in recent years, international tourism has managed to recover from the decline caused by the global financial and economic crisis. Rates of growth in the number of arrivals and tourism receipts, international tourism recorded in 2010 and 2011 entitle hopes that in the next period will be no such increase, even if rates will be more modest. Analyzing the most important studies and forecasts of international tourism organizations, we find that Europe continues to be the most visited regional destination of the world, but is expected to reduce their market share in coming years due to new competition of the World especially in countries belonging to Asia-Pacific region, but also because of the weakness of many European economies, especially the countries of the Eurozone.
