Contributions to the Methodology of Tourism History Research

During the 20th century the meaning of several relevant tourist concepts has undergone major changes. It is partly due to this fact that a significant portion of the terminologies were also used as a synonym. Attempts to define them had already been made between the two World Wars, but a unified conceptual usage has not been happened in the domestic literature. After the World War II, the statistical data releases have changed and with many new – mainly politically induced – social phenomena had to be faced, which further expanded the variability of the terms of tourism. In my work, I make an attempt at exact determining and statistically applying primarily these concepts; and a few new indicators used in the study may help a broader spectrum of investigation of domestic tourism.
