Development of Water Tourism – the Prospects of the Hungarian Tisza River Basin


  • Krisztina UJVÁRI

    (University of Pecs (Hungary))


One of the most prominent perspectives for the economic development of Eastern Hungary, more specifically the Tisza River basin, lies in water tourism on the river Tisza. In 2005, the author of the present paper was entrusted with the leadership of a work team with the assignment of assessing the state of water tourism on the Hungarian section of the Tisza and determining the direction of further development. Within the frameworks of this program, the Hungarian sections of several flowing waters such as the Tisza, Bodrog, Körös and Maros rivers were studied, under the collective name of the Tisza River basin, together with all potential target areas for water tourism along these rivers. The aim of the Tisza River Water Tourism Development Program, coordinated by the Hungarian National Tourist Office., was to become part of the National Tourism Development Strategy, which is part of the National Development Plan (2007–2013), and become eligible for national and EU funding for development projects.
