Abstract
Ovaj diplomski rad se bavi temama odrţivog turizma i ekoturizma. Kroz rad je predstavljena zaštićena priroda, održivi razvoj, ekoturizam te primjeri dobrog upravljanja ekoturizmom, kako u međunarodnom smislu tako i u Hrvatskoj. Za svjetske primjere dobrog upravljanja odabrani su Kostarika i Norveška. Ekoturizam je djelotvorna strategija ekonomske valorizacije prirodnih zona ili ugroţenih kulturnih lokaliteta, izvrsno područje za razvoj novih radnih mjesta u turističkom sektoru, a koja neće štetiti okolišu. Predstavljenim primjerima i analizama dvaju odabranih parkova prirode (PP Medvednica, PP Lonjsko polje) u Hrvatskoj, dolazimo do zaključka da je ekoturizam u Hrvatskoj još u začecima. Potencijal je izniman, kojeg bi na adekvatan i optimalan način trebalo iskoristiti i valorizirati, od prirodne i kulturne baštine do nematerijalne baštine. Dobrim strateškim upravljanjem na održiv naĉin došlo bi do razvoja cjelogodišnjeg turizma te čak do regionalnog razvoja kontinentalnih dijelova Hrvatske.

This thesis deals with suistainable and eco tourism. Therefore this paper explains concepts of protected nature, sustainable development, eco tourism and gives examples of good management in eco tourism both in international and national terms. Costarica and Norway are elected as the world's best examples of good management. Eco tourism is effective strategy of economic evaluation of natural areas and endangered cultural sites and excellent ground for new employments in the field of tourism but the one that will not harm the environment. Examples and anlyzes of natural parks introduced in this paper led to the conclusion that eco tourism in Croatia is still in its infancy. The potential, which includes natural, cultural and intangible heritage, is outstanding and it should be used and evaluated in adequate and optimal way. Good strategic management could leave to year-round tourism and it could even cause regional development of the continental Croatia.
