Summary/Abstract: The study of large urban centers as tourist destinations is done from different perspectives. Their analysis is important since they are carriers of important features for selecting the destination and its attractiveness. These arguments form the basis for defining the concept of "urban tourist destination" and define approaches that are relevant to the formation of conceptual and practical models to measure its attractiveness. The paper examines the different methods of measuring the attractiveness of the urban tourist destination. An emphasis is placed on research methodology based on the Global Power Index. An overview of the results of the application of this method is made and the ranking of the ten most attractive urban tourist destinations in the world for the period 2014-2016 is analyzed.
