Abstract: The most important form of tourism in the Czech Republic is cultural tourism. Since the largest number of cultural monuments is situated in towns, it mainly involves heritage tourism. Primary destinations include urban conservation areas or zones, castles and chateaux. The second area of cultural tourism includes zoos. In terms of visitor numbers, zoos are the most visited attractions of many towns. Although folklore traditions are kept mainly in rural areas, most folklore festivals and shows take place in towns as these have the necessary infrastructure to hold them. The authors of this paper have long been engaged in this issue in theory as well as in the form of a series of specific research. The paper summarises the findings from the perspective of urban tourism.
