Abstract

Competitiveness of a city can be seen from different points of view, including tourism attractiveness. Then it is understood as an ability to compete effectively in the area of tourism with other cities. The purpose of this article is to establish determinants of urban competitiveness through its decomposition into elements related to the tourism industry. This topic seems to be important because cities influence the functioning and development of whole regions. Moreover, depending on the nature of the city and its location, it can fulfill a variety of functions, which are essential for citizens` standard of living. While searching for determinants of competitiveness, one has to assume that certain factors will affect the competitiveness positively, while others will be a limitation. The first group includes accommodation and tourism services, as well as city resources, such as architectural attractions, nature and availability of transport. The competitiveness can be restricted by polluted natural environment and crime rate. Key words: index of competitiveness, functions of a city, tourism, competition
