Abstract

The article presents the concept of typology and regionalization of tourism and recreation in the context of Poland and the World. The tourism and recreation types were identified based on specific criteria, related mainly to geographical environment, cultural resources, development of tourist and recreation, as well as tourist traffic and income. Having indicated dominance or co-dominance of individual types, Poland was divided into 8 regions and 60 sub-regions pertaining to tourism and recreation. As far as regionalization of the world is concerned, particular attention was drawn to the natural and cultural values, tourist-recreational development and current geopolitical division. The presented model distinguishes 6 mega-regions (continents), 31 macro-regions and 196 mesoregions.
