Abstract

The actuality of research is based on a very small attention that is paid to rights and needs of persons with disabilities. Research includes the assessment of the legislation and assessment of traffic and accommodation accessibility, as well as the accessiblity of the other contents of the tourism offer. The aim of the research is to show the importance of developing accessible tourism in order to achieve sustainable tourism development. From the social aspect, it is necessary to grant the basic human right to travel. It also has a significant economic effect, given the number of people in the world who have some form of disability. According to the results of the research, accessibility and tourist offer for persons with disabilities in Montenegro are at an inadequate level, and improvement of infrastructure and adaptation of the offer would significantly contribute to strengthening the sustainability of the tourist product.
