Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a summary of knowledge on cultural heritage and its impact on the development of tourism in the territory of Kosovo, with a special focus on the Prizren region, given the great importance of these industries in economic development. We know that methods in the social sciences are indispensable research tools that enable us to achieve new results and knowledge, or to correct existing ones. In this paper we have applied almost all the methods little by little, but we will single them out: the historical method which consists of techniques and instructions by which historians use primary sources and other data, such as: archaeological data, for to make studies on the histories of the past for the cultural heritage and the descriptive or descriptive method, through which we have described the various historical monuments, as an important part of the cultural heritage as well as as a basis for the development of tourism in the country. People all over the world organize tourist trips with the aim of relaxing, having fun, doing various activities so that they get away from their work routine and their work responsibilities. This paper provides a theoretical approach to cultural heritage and tourism, as well as the impact of effective and efficient management in increasing the number of tourists and visitors and increasing the use of cultural heritage capacities in Kosovo. Based on the data of the cultural heritage in the country, such as various historical monuments built centuries ago, for which local and foreign tourists show special interest to visit, through which the development of tourism in the country is enabled, Investing in the further development and promotion of these tourist products, would be of particular importance, as it would inform the public about the monuments of historical and heritage importance of our country, which should be visited. Therefore, based on the available data on the topic in question, we can conclude that the development of tourism depends on the promotion of products, so our recommendation is that local institutions pay great attention to the strict implementation of long-term tourism development strategy, thus investing in the preservation of the rich cultural heritage that our country has and its promotion through various cultural and artistic activities, as well as informing the general population about them through the media
