lecture / presentation description
Taking into consideration generally recognized opportunities of tourism development that are caused by unique natural, historical and cultural, ethnographical peculiarities, the perspective of the development of tourism industry in the Ukrainian Carpathians is traced. The essence and functions of nostalgic tourism (cultural, ecological, economical, educational, political, social) are determined in the speech. The motivation of performing nostalgic trips to Ukraine is based on tourists’ necessity to visit the places of their historical dwelling, origin of their ancestors, to get deeper knowledge of cultural traditions of native land, to get in touch with compatriots and relatives, etc. The author puts an accent on the necessity of realization of a chain of actions concerning increasing the number of tourist streams to Ivano-Frankivsk region, the assistance of Ukrainian diaspora’s of USA representatives in the development of excursive nostalgic routs to Precarpathia. Perspective for the Ukrainian Carpathians is rural green tourism as the form of small business that gives the opportunity to solve the problem concerning the employment of rural citizens, to use natural, cultural and historical potential of villages in the mountainous area better. Rural rest especially attracts the citizens of “megacities” to understand authentic national traditions.
