ABSTRACT
Geodiversity phenomena can equally interest tourists as well as a living world inside ecotourism. Volcanic relief, mountains, fluvial relieves, caves and sand dunes attract more and more tourists. Tourism market shows a tendency of an increased number of tourists with new interests. That is a real opportunity to present the values of geodiversity inside the tourist offer. Geodiversity based tourism - geotourism should not be observed outside ecotourism since it has a strongly emphasized educational function and it serves a better understanding and protection of natural heritage. Such characteristics of geotourism should be in tight connection with sustainable development, i.e. sustainable tourism.
