Abstract

The protected natural areas are assets of great importance for the development of tourism. Bearing in mind the fact that tourism, in addition to positive impacts, in many ways also exerts a negative influence on the environment, especially in the field of natural resources and biodiversity, it is interesting to consider the influence of tourism on the protected natural areas and the reason why the monitoring of protected areas in Serbia is necessary. The aforesaid is particularly important as the sustainable management of the protected natural areas is an important condition of continuous development of tourist turnover. The research section of the paper deals with the number of individual protected natural assets in Serbia in the period from 2015 to 2017 and touches upon the ecologically significant areas. The paper applies an analytical method, a deductive method and the basic quantitative analysis of data. The research in this paper was based on the official data of the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia and the Environmental Protection Agency.
