Using that aspect of development, the aim of this paper is to discover a part of potential factors for mutual regional development of the Balkan Peninsula states, especially in the sphere of tertiary activities and tourism in that frames. Further detailing will be direct on utilization of natural wealth as favorable climate conditions and natural beauties as comparative advantage of the Balkan region that fortunately remain almost untouched by the contemporary polluters present in the other parts of the world. This kind of analysis must stress not only the current situation, but especially have to determine future directions through different programs in order to achieve positive impact on development process. Using natural benefices as a real development factor will be examine through a theoretical model for Republic of Macedonia, and then in a broader region with which Macedonia has natural relations. That is because Republic of Macedonia is a small country situated in the southern part of the Balkan Peninsula and it is a natural bridge between east and west, north and south. Priorities in Macedonian development perspectives are: to increase the economy efficiency and to achieve sustainable development; to increase employment and improve social conditions; to develop open economy and to ensure necessary domestic products protection; and export orientation of the economy. In order to accomplish those basic directions and development priorities, a number of limiting factors have to be overcome. One of the possible solutions may be creating tourism regional development strategy, using the possibilities for attracting visitors from large metropolises. That gives possibility for using tourism and especially its ecological aspects as one of the most important segments for realization of the regional development of Macedonia and a broader Balkan region.
