Summary/Abstract: The issue of terrorism in tourism is prioritized by the choice of the "soft target" to achieve political goals of terrorists. Estimated risks threaten all subjects in tourism industry and above all to the national economy which thus remains without a significant inflow of funds in its budget. Therefore, the risk management of terrorism is a common need and responsibility of public and private sector in securing the safety of tourists and local residents, which makes security as an necessary prerequisite for profit. The paper discusses the tendency of increasing terrorist threats in the tourism and joint strategies and constraints of all stakeholders in the prevention and combating of threats based on risk assessment and impact analysis.
