About publication:

„This book focuses on tourism education in several European countries and former Soviet republics. These countries have a history of tourism education, so they are not starting from nothing. The articles in this volume address issues such as: Are the schools training students for the appropriate jobs; Are the schools providing training in the skills necessary for modern tourism; How can schools provide the quality of training to ensure a worthwhile tourist experience? The book on tourism education is a guide for tourist destinations. It prepares human resources to be able to work in transformative tourism conditions. The articles focus on pedagogy and training of tourism practitioners. All the authors are members of faculties relating to tourism and all have experience in the industry.

In Part 1 we look at pedagogical issues relating to research, education and practice of tourism. Part 2 focuses on cultural issues in tourism. We hope you find these readings educational as well as interesting. We are pleased to have participation from scholars from so many countries addressing the important issue of education for tourism.“
