Abstract

Community-based tourism has become an important part of tourism research worldwide. In Lithuania, however, it has not gained much academic attention yet. With this study, the authors try to deliver more knowledge on the subject in their home country. The aim of the study is to examine the potential of community-based tourism in Vilnius district municipality, as well as to propose measures to ensure its feasibility. A qualitative approach is used. The data mainly comes from literature review and semi-structured interviews. The research reveals a number of issues that need to be addressed and tackled if a community-based tourism is sought. Therefore, a number of corresponding measures are proposed.
