The standpoint was that an empiric study needed to complement the theory. This filed study took place in Dubrovnik in Croatia. The thesis identifies the antagonism between conservation and development based on the theoretical research. Moreover the study adds a perspective to the research through the identification of further dimensions of this antagonism. It was found that Dubrovnik’s main goal with destination development is to achieve economical development. This often happens on the expense of conservation of the cultural value and its inhabitants living conditions.

Another conclusion stated a challenge which historical towns are faced with concerning the resources between conservation and development. (Less)
