Sažetak
The human needs for travel and special-interest forms of tourism are playing an increasingly important role in tourist travels. Hence, the effect of tourism on space is becoming a vital issue and subject of interest for scientists and experts in a variety of areas. As a special-interest form of tourism, nautical tourism, together with and its infrastructure and superstructure, exerts a powerful influence on the transformation of space, in an enabling as well as a constraining sense. Based on their previous experience, the authors examine the spatial and environmental determinants of nautical tourism development in Croatia. In accordance with the problem presented, the purpose of this paper is to determine the existing condition of nautical tourism in Croatia. The paper aims to propose a development model that focuses on the environmental and economic acceptability of space for sitting nautical tourism ports. The special aim of this paper is to propose a model of the spatial development of nautical tourism which is based on a sustainable carrying-capacity development scenario. The paper supports a systematic approach to planning, as well as the use of the scenario methods in selecting a development model. The scenario method belongs to the order of prospective methods used in various research fields and in preparing strategic decisions. Applying the scenario method in this study allows the decision-maker to choose between several alternatives, or to choose between scenarios of intense and moderate versions of nautical tourism. The sustainable development scenario selected is based on a spatial and environmental approach to nautical tourism development in Croatia. The majority of natural marine resources needed for the development of nautical tourism in Croatia are located in coastal and insular areas. Croatia is proud of its well-indented coastline, and boasts a total of 1, 246 islands, islets, rocks and reefs. Marinas in Croatia are located in various, exceptionally protected locations, ranging from large towns to small island coves. Considering that nautical tourism generates a variety of direct and indirect benefits, the Croatian government, development experts and coastal communities have embraced nautical tourism development. However, due to a changing institutional environment, this development could have adverse outcomes for space.
