Nekolný, Lukáš ; Fialová, Dana (advisor) ; Šantrůčková, Markéta (referee) ; Boltižiar, Martin (referee)
This dissertation deals with research of the zoo as a social construct, which in its history and form represents the development of the relationship between society and nature, or man and animals. At the same time, it is a specific cultural landscape reflecting other changes in paradigms and needs in society. The current form of zoos has always reflected various economic, political, environmental and cultural aspects, or opinion and spatial changes of society. This work is a contribution to the discussion of the application of thematization typical of contemporary experience-oriented society. The aim of the thesis is to characterize the development of zoos and their current form in Europe, where this concept originated at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, and to discuss regional differences regarding the different geographical context of the post-socialist space. From the geographical point of view, this is a topic rarely addressed so far, both from a theoretical (the zoo as an example of the specific landscape) as well as a regional approach. The first part provides a theoretical framework by means of a discussion of scientific literature and formulating the starting points of the research based on selected concepts and paradigms (social constructivism, the relationship between man and...

Lohrová, Zuzana ; Jelen, Jakub (advisor) ; Nekolný, Lukáš (referee)
The bachelor's thesis deals with the evaluation of the impact of the inscription of the Landscape for the Breeding and Training of Ceremonial Carriage Horses in Kladruby nad Labem on the World Heritage List from the point of view of actors in the public, private and non-profit spheres. This inscription took place in July 2019 and it is now possible to study its further development. The first part of the thesis is devoted to the presentation of the UNESCO organization and the evaluation of the possible effects of the inscription of the monument on the World Heritage List according to the literature. It is also focused on the analysis of the Landscape for the Breeding and Training of Ceremonial Carriage Horses in Kladruby nad Labem. The second part presents the research, which was focused on evaluating the impact of the inscription on the World Heritage List using semi-structured interviews with the individual actors mentioned above. One of the main findings is, for example, that respondents consider the increased level of professional care of the estate to be the greatest benefit. On the contrary, disruption of the daily life of local residents can be considered as a negative impact.

The issues in methodology and data interpretation in studies of tourist attractions' attendance
Nekolný, Lukáš
THE ISSUES IN METHODOLOGY AND DATA INTERPRETATION IN STUDIES OF TOURIST ATTRACTIONS' ATTENDANCE Lukáš Nekolný Abstract Attendance belongs to the main quantitative indicators of tourism which is one of the most important sectors of human activites. Knowledge about number of visitors has substantiation in scientific research and in destination management. In this case it is essential to combine the sustainability and the economic benefits. The number of visitors (visits) is important regarding to education and media. Therefore the use of comparable methodology is appropriate before interpretation of corresponding data. The aims of this thesis after analysing methodologic risk issues are to create the recommendation and to compare data of tourist attractions. The main points of recommendation we can mark are to compare individual attractions regardless of the ownership structure and to separate counting of tour routes and counting of visitor numbers with season tickets without distorted coefficients. All these issues are completed through the model cases from zoos - one of the most visited tourist attractions. Keywords: tourism, attendance, tourist attraction, methodology, interpretation, zoo

Pileček, Radek ; Nekolný, Lukáš (advisor) ; Vágner, Jiří (referee)
New comparative method for assessing tourism potential: the case of Georgia, Israel and Cyprus _______________________________________________________________________________________ Abstract This bachelor thesis presents a new comparative method by which it would be possible to evaluate the tourism potential of states or regions at the international level while comparing them in terms of eligibility for tourism development. The main goal of the thesis is to create the own new methodology. However, this is preceded by a relatively detailed theoretical and methodological literature review, in which mainly the current approaches to assessing the tourism potential are introduced. The use of the new method in practice is presented on the example of a comparison of three different destinations - Georgia, Israel and Cyprus. These countries have surprisingly many in common, including approximately the same number of international tourist arrivals. However, the tourism potential is very different, not only when comparing its final value, but even more when comparing all the values of individual factors from which the overall potential is compounded. At the end of this thesis, the significance of safety factor, which could cause the difference between the established tourism potential and the real level of inbound...

In the practical part, these findings are applied to the example of the Czech Republic and the selected destinations, where the film and dark tourism was interconnected. Practical part is including SWOT analysis of selected destinations and questionnaire survey and evaluation of results and subsequent recommendation resulting from acquired data. The aim of the work is to introduce the theme of dark and film tourism in the field of theory and to explore the extent to which shooting a film on a particular destination affects the attendance of a given place.
