Abstract

The need for constant and frequent rehabilitation of children with motor skills problems provides an opportunity for tourism development in the Republic of Serbia. It is certain that there is no possibility for tourism development without quality spatial, professional and technical conditions for good physical rehabilitation, medical monitoring and well-trained therapists, who have knowledge and experience in working with children. Once these conditions have been met, rehabilitation centers can become “open to” this field of health tourism that could provide considerable resources. This paper will deal with spa tourism and capacities in the domain of physical rehabilitation of children, when their stay and therapy is provided by the National Health Insurance Fund, but the emphasis will be placed on the additional tourist facilities for a child and a caregiver, as well as spa therapies that will be funded by the spa itself, with special emphasis on improvement of the quality.
