 Summary:
 The paper explains the terms of sustainable tourism and its role in the overall development of the local territory. The municipality of Sopot was chosen because of its several specific caracteristics. Besides its natural and anthropogenic resources that can be divided into several levels (ranges), the municipality of Sopot is an integral part of the largest tourism market in Serbia (Belgrade AT) and it has a favorable geographical location and exceptional political and managerial stability ( over 25 years ). Its territory comprises several different levels of plans (RSP AT Belgrade, SPSP Avala-Kosmaj, SPSP Corridor X ). This area is also a subject of numerous analyses in many sectoral strategies, which treat it in a direct and indirect way. Based on thorough analysis, using a clear methodological framework and indicators, the authors provide suggestions for the spatial organization of tourism in the territory of the municipality, the planning concept and the types of tourism, aiming to improve the economic balance of the local government and therefore its overall development potential and perspective.
