Scientific discussion concerning correlation and bonds which exist between the theory of economic development and theory of development of tourism requires that from the overall theoretical economic thinking and the theory of tourism it should be, first of all, separated only the part which deals with development. This thing is not always easy and simple to realize without touching numerous limiting topics, because in such discussions it is usually very hard to place a limit between a general theoretical part and the part which mainly deals with development. The aim of this paper is to try to understand the links between economic theory and the theory of tourism development. For the purposes of this paper, a method of analysis will be used to identify and highlight important characteristics, the synthesis method, ranging from complex to simple elements, abstraction, induction and deduction methods in order to study the underlying hypotheses and confirm certain attitudes and facts. Modern theories of the development of tourism are those theories which developed in the time of the most intensive development trends after the termination of the Second World War. However, this statement is not thoroughly true.
