Some communities living in one country have their own history, tradition and they feel a little bit different from the rest of population. Often they express their culture distinction by cultivation of folklore. Can this folklore be a tourist attraction? What do Kaszubi do for develop their culture and attract the tourists? And what more can they do?Cultural/urban/architectural context in which study is conducted Kaszuby, the wonderful region of Poland: In the North part of Poland there is a region called „Kaszuby”, lived by “Kaszubi”. This region has a really various and beautiful countryside. There are numerous lakes, rivers and forests and also the Baltic sea. This region, rich in natural valorous, is also rich in monuments, especially in north cities like Gda_sk or Sopot. This beauty area is lived by people with very interesting culture. Kaszubi are not distinct nation but they have their own language, the only regional language mentioned in Polish Constitution. They maintain their distinction by the cultivation of folklore especially: embroidering, snuff tradition, wicker-work, potter’s trade.Folklore and culture tourisme: In literature we can find different definitions of folklore. In this work author accepts the definition from “Ethnological dictionary, general terms” Zofia Staszczak [Staszczak Zofia, “Slownik etnologiczny terminy ogólne”, Warszawa-Poznan 1987]. In this book we distinct 3 kinds of folklore: traditional, reconstructed, spontaneous modern folklore. For the tourist aim the most often people use this reconstructed folklore. Another term important for this work is “culture tourism”. Here the author accepts opinion of Wladyslaw Gaworecki [Gaworecki Wladyslaw, “Turystyka”, Warszawa 2003] that is not only visiting of precious places but also it is a tourism of reflection and communication.Research questions, objectives and/or hypotheses :Do Kaszubi take advantages from their ethnic distinction for tourism’s developing? What kind of solution do they choose to link the tourists’ interest towards Kaszuby’s folklore? They could make something better?Research strategy/methodology developed for tackling research: In this work the author has used the literature research collected in many Polish special libraries, has interviewed the indigenous community and has profited her own experience reached by the visiting of the region.In September 2005 the author made a pilot survey which confirmed some result of literature research. In this survey participate 100 people and they answer if Kaszuby’s folklore could be attractive and which part of it is the most interesting and which expect to be developed. The author would like to make this survey with biggest group of people in Kaszuby. In the future she would like to compare this region with another region of strong ethnic distinction. State of development of thesis: research proposal (theoretical framework, literature review, hypothesis), data collection People from Kaszuby seem to realize that folklore could be a way for attracting tourists. They organize more and more folklore festivals, propose folklore worships, produce various souvenirs connected to folklore. They popularize their culture by museums. In this region there is one of the biggest ethnographical museum in Europe, Ethnographical Park in Wdzydze Kiszewskie. We observe a good development’s direction of “folklore tourism” in Kaszuby. Could they change something, make it better? In both: literature research and the pilot survey the results show that they have to accentuate importance of their cuisine (traditional restaurant and maybe they could propose culinary products?)Conclusion: Example of Kaszuby shows that culture distinction, especially express by folklore, could be a big tourist attraction and it could increase the number of the tourists visiting the region.
