Abstract

The aim of the paper is to present the current forms of rural tourism in Serbia and the ways of their financing. In addition to the field research method, the descriptive method as well as the methods of analysis and synthesis are used in the paper. Forms of rural tourism are defined and differentiated according to the motives motivating tourists’ arrival to rural areas. It is estimated that today in Europe there are over 50 different forms of rural tourism. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the most common form of rural tourism is agrotourism. According to the results of the research, agrotourism is also the most frequent in Serbia as well. There are also developed the szallas tourism, the beekeeping tourism, bio-agrotourism, eco-tourism, as well as the other forms of rural tourism. The dominant way of financing all forms of rural tourism in the past period was self-financing. For their future development it is necessary to define innovative financing modalities.
