Abstract

The aim of this study is to find out the connection between the amount of sunshine hours, as changing part of landscape elements, and the touristical attractiveness and the popularity of visitors in the Káli Basin in Hungary. The data have been collected between 25 June and 13 September 1999. The analysis of the data shows that in the period from 25 June to 20 August, strong, negative correlation exists between the above mentioned two variables; and the basin is visited by those tourists, who spend their holiday in the resorts at Lake Balaton. In the studied period the touristical frequentation of the area grew on cloudy days - when the amount of direct solar radiation is decreased - , probably because this weather is not favourable for bathing. Later, between 21 August and 13 September a positive correlation was found, which presents quite well that after the end of the bathing season tourists preferred to visit this area in days characterised by sunshine, and they mostly came from the neighbouring towns and from the capital. In this period the increasing amount of sunshine hours intensified the touristical potential of the Káli Basin. The above mentioned facts suggest, that the Káli Basin belongs to the touristical attraction zone of Lake Balaton and the number of visitors in the summer season depends on the migration of visitors of Lake Balaton.
