The paper analysis the role of niche tourism development in providing an alternative to traditional industries in post-industrial economies. Since mass tourism development may bring about serious negative social, economic and environmental consequences, and as industrial communities often lack the traditional geographical and heritage resources of conventional tourism development, the growth of tourism in post-industrial areas is usually based on creativity and innovation in identifying potential niche products and catering for niche visitor segments. The research presented in the paper analyses the case of Székesfehérvár, Hungary, an urban destination in transformation.
