Abstract

Technological advancement did not spare or steer clear of tourism. From the economic point of view, new techniques and procedures introduced within the field of tourism resulted in positive trends. However, when examined from the tourists point of view and their needs, the development effects remain controversial. The aim of this paper is to provide insight into the question of whether the effects of technological advancement on tourism can be considered beneficial or harmful, and to what degree. This paper also examines how technological advancement reflects on tourism, using the County of Istria (Croatia) as an example. It also outlines the situation in tourism in the past and in the present within this context.
