This alternative form of tourism is an important driver of tourism in general, which is confirmed by data from the World Tourism Organization that most funds spent on this alternative form of tourism.

It is pronounced travel outside the country's borders in order to look at a sports game, to go skiing, cruising, etc., on the one hand activates the tourists, but the other side and relax and animate.
