Abstract - New Polish publications about self-realizational and cultural tourism – comments and remarks in a scientific description of Elzbieta Cynarska (IPA) and Kazimierz Obodynski (UR)

The authors of the following study make a content analysis of the new Polish scientific literature devoted to tourism, focussing on in particular their cultural and educational aspects. New studies have appeared concerning cultural and self-realizational tourism, for example 7 studies published in the 10th volume of "Ido movement for Culture", in the section devoted to Cultural Tourism . Textbooks, monographs and other research papers have also been published. Some researchers try to present this phenomenon as a whole, while others treat it in a fragmentary way, thus creating contributory papers. In the first category we can distinguish the authors realizing their theoretical concepts on the basis of sociology.
