The battlefield as an object of interest to visitors and adaptation to tourism

The article by Dr. Dagmara Chylińska will analyse  in general terms the potential of battlefields for tourism, but also in material and symbolic terms how to present and adapt them as particularly “sensitive” symbols of heritage, a problem which any adaptation to tourism would need to solve, not to mention the technical problems also involved. The author proposes that being more active in local and regional education as well as encouraging historical events such as re-enactments are important ways for battlefields to become more actively involved in tourism.
