Economic development and change coming true in national and international scale are differently reflected to many cities. While some cites grow on the base of the advantages that modern and competitive industry brings, the others insist to be a part of the same change and challenge. In these cities as mentioned, traditional industry, like trade and agriculture, decreases in importance and it doesn’t give adequate support to urban organization. To remove the negative situation in question and to turn the process into positive one, cities use natural, historical and cultural tourism values as a tool in reviving the economy and correcting the life standards. But if these tools are to be continuously used, many variables need measuring. One of variables is public view to tourism and tourist.
