International tourism as bricolage: an analysis of Central Europe on the brink of European Union membership



International tourism as bricolage: an analysis of Central Europe on the brink of European Union membership



International Journal of Tourism Research 7(2): 79-93



This paper examines the trajectory of international tourism and its economic role in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia during the post-1989 transition, leading to their EU accession in 2004. Although there are relatively simple, and broadly comparable, trends in all four countries in visitor and tourism flows, this is based on a chaotic conceptualization of international mobility.
