Abstract (in English)

Throughout the past and present cultural heritage and cultural landscapes have been regarded from many different angels, ranging from reverence to the evaluation of their different values but in reality, the interest was always somehow the domain of ideological, political, economic and individual pressure. Intensive natural and anthropogenic changes in the last thousand years and especially, in the last decades made intensive impact on suburb landscape and urbanization in the territory of the Slovenian coast. After large-scale construction projects they partly destroy the natural and medieval urban environment and has been modified to such extent that its earlier landscape has virtually been changed completely. Irreversible damage made in the past and the new globalization process -to justify fast economic gains, are the main problems how to manage the relationship between economic activity, tourist industry and the cultural heritage. In spite of the fact that the impact on archaeological heritage and landscape should be an issue for sustainability, the economic interest is still decidable. From this point of view the paper will present the practice of a comprehensive strategy for the conservation of cultural heritage and landscape in this region.
