Approximation of Nautical Tourism Routes by Applying the Markov Chain

2019 Tehnički Vjesnik  
Nautical tourist routes and ports of nautical tourism referred to as points of transits for sports and leisure crafts form a unique system within the nautical tourist offers are defined. Nautical traffic functions according to specific regularities that have to be continuously studied and analysed in order to eliminate bottlenecks that represent the main obstacles for offering high quality services. Therefore, the purpose and aim of this research has been the approximation of nautical tourist

Taking into consideration specific regularities in the formation of nautical tourist routes within the ports of nautical tourism, fourteen state systems have been analysed, two of which relate to those nautical tourist routes that pass across Italy and Slovenia when crafts have to enter or leave the ports. The results of this research have revealed bottlenecks areas within nautical tourism ports and their related routes that have been formed within the Istarska and Primorsko-goranska County.
