residents’ attitudes, impacts, tourism, Montenegro
Residents’ attitudes toward tourism development and its impacts (economic, sociocultural and environmental) in case of Montenegro haven’t been analyzed before in a scientific and systematic way. The main aim of this paper is to provide a highquality base for further research bearing in mind that there is no relevant, scientific research related to this topic. For the purposes of this paper poll survey among residents in Montenegro (total 857) was conducted in 2018. Collected data were processed and analyzed by different statistical methods. Results showed that attitudes of residents depend on their place of residence. There is also a statistically significant relationship between demographic characteristics and positive and negative attitudes toward tourism impacts but the relationship is not strong. New, expanded research regarding the topic is recommended as well as the introduction of destination lifecycle analysi.
