One of the features of contemporary tourism is a growing role of urban destinations. Increased concentration of tourism in the city supports development of the city's tourism function as it rełies on the level and intensity of tourist traffic. The level of tourism development changes over time and it needs to be measured. This work suggests methods of measuring the extent and rate of tourism development, and proposes ways of assessment whether the city's tourism function develops in the right direction and how it is supported by city authorities. It also looks at the important role of local residents in city tourism. The work is equally theoretical, methodological and practical. It is based on the case study of the city of Poznan, but measurement techniques and the investigation outcomes presented in this publication will likely have general applicability.
