Abstract

Regional development of Toplica district can largely be supported by the development of tourism as an economic activity. In recent years there has been an increase in number of tourists -but insufficiently - so as to significantly contribute to the development of the District. Tourism potential is emphasized by a large number of healing water sources that are not sufficiently exploited. Insufficient development of infrastructure facilities, a small number of hotels, sports and recreational facilities, keep this District still backward compared to larger centers, such as the mountains of Kopaonik, Zlatibor, Tara, Stara Planina. Regional development of the entire Toplica district should move forward in the direction of putting all together of all the advantages and potential of the observed District, which requires additional investments into infrastructure, economy, other accommodation facilities and else.
