Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the results of tourist attractiveness of West Pomeranian Voivodeship. Tourist attractiveness is determined by many factors which are grouped at work into three sections: tourist attractions, the state and the protection of the environment and communication availability [Rogalewski 1974]. Each of the sections describes the weighted variables. The aim of this study is to analyze the degree of attractiveness of the region counties. Synthetic index method was used as a basis in addition to the standard method of analysis by Z. Hellwig. The analysis showed large variations of territorial attractiveness of the region, with the general predominance of the Baltic Sea area. At the end the most branded tourist products of Western Pomerania are presented, with their geographical distribution.
