Abstract

Route-based tourism product development is known worldwide, and can be particularly advantageous for less
developed areas, which are less familiar in the tourism market. By mixing the phenomena of tourism, the economy,
innovation and social difficulties, certain types of tourism routes can be tools for social innovations, if they are
combined with spatial development, support of local communities and integration of local products. The first part of
this study gives a literature review regarding route-based tourism products, alongside the explanation of conceptual
differences. In the second part, we introduce the so-called “History Valley” in the Cserehát region, with a multi-view
analysis.
