Abstract

The analysis of natural and androgenic geneses resources for development geotourizm was performed within the industrial and technologically loaded region - Dnipropetrovsk region. The regional catalog of mining areas and objects as promising geotourizm  industrial area attractions was done. The analysis of spatial distribution geotourist objects. Proven capabilities qualitative improvement and quantitative expansion of the resource base for geotourizm by mining interesting objects of different types. The observation a full-scale monitoring and geoenvironmental study of  key areas and sites of natural and anthropogenic genesis. The study included the collection, analysis, compilation of information about the area and objects of nature preserves and mine territory of the Dnepropetrovsk region. Grounded opportunities and prospects of the region geotourizm educational, scientific, professional and business, educational, health, sports, extreme direction. Defined social and environmental role and recreational value of objects within each mining area for preserve and increase of the geodiversity and geotourizm potential territory. The practical significance of the research is to create a regional directory of mining areas and objects as geotourizm  attractions, analyzing their territorial distribution in order to develop information support of geotourizm trails in the area. Keywords: geotourizm, mining areas, geotourist attractions , geotourist destinations
