Abstract


The links and relations between religion and tourism are becoming more and more complex and evolving over time, and best reflection is in the numerous sacral objects and contents that have become the subject of interest of tourists over time. With the popularization of tourism, cultural content and historical values of sacral objects attract more and more visitors, so their original religious purpose is often neglected. Therefore, it is very difficult to draw the line between religious and cultural forms of tourism, since tourists and religious visitors who visit religious sites for cultural needs and knowledge still have something in common: both types of visitors to religious sites have certain spiritual needs, but they are manifested in different ways. The Republic of Serbia, owing primarily to its geographical location, has had a turbulent history, which also left a mark on the wealth of sacral architecture. In recent decades, with the increasing popularity of religious tourism in the world, religious objects of the Republic of Serbia have gained importance.
