24 Pages, Grade: 1,3


Abstract or Introduction

This research project deals with the question to what extent the Croatian port city of Dubrovnik is affected by overtourism and how this can be interpreted and mitigated.

Overtourism is a multifaceted phenomenon that is very much on the agenda of the tourism industry today. At the International Tourism Fair in Berlin in 2018, as well as in numerous newspaper articles, but also in general language use, the subject of overtourism is omnipresent. Due to the worldwide increase in travel behavior and the growing popularity of city tourism, urban areas are becoming increasingly congested. These include overcrowded streets and alleys, public places, accommodation facilities and numerous other facilities.

This often has negative social, economic and ecological effects. More and more often, headlines of disgruntled inhabitants, socio-cultural conflicts, infrastructural problems, as well as other grievances can be found in the media. In many cases, these are due to even more rapidly increasing numbers of tourists.
