We may say, without mistake that tourist journeys occurred during antiquity, and tourism activities in the rural space have been empirically carried out since the same period. Anyway, it is well known, that students largely participated in: visiting sacred places - Dadona (Zeus) and Delphi (Apollo) – curative baths or festive games periodically organized. After the ‘60ies, mankind has started to be more and more preoccupied with holiday destinations, tourism becoming one of the most important economic activities in the world. Simultaneously with manifesting first tendencies in more and more frequent holiday spending in the middle of nature, more and more tourists wished to spend relaxing time in the rural environment (space). Rural tourism is based on most receiving (reception) types existing within equipment largely found on private estates of the rural space inhabitants, who practice (as service providers) tourism activities. The practice of rural tourism grew more and more during the second half of the 20th century. On almost the whole of the European continent, a weekend or a holiday in the country side has become a habit for fresh air, nature and pure ecological space lovers.
