AbstractThe purpose of the studies was to indicate the most perspective directions of development of the municipalities as well as a safety level at work in the agriculture and in the local industry. The key issue was to assess a quality of natural environment in order to attract the tourists to this community. The studies were performed on the sample of 200 randomly selected inhabitants of the municipalities and 100 arrived tourists. The survey consisted of 15 questions (6 open and 9 closed ones). The results of the survey show that among the most developmental directions of economy the inhabitants of both municipalities put first tourist and agritourism. Also the most of tourists have decided that the natural advantages of municipalities encourage to visit both regions. The multi-criteria analysis showed that commune B is characterized by a higher quality of environment and higher landscape values than commune A. Similarly, the natural environment was assessed by the inhabitants of both communes. The greatest problem in both communes is unsatisfactory air quality, while the greatest problem of safety at work was pain in the lumbar spine, around the neck and shoulder line. Despite this only 13% (commune A) and 6,1% (Commune B) of the expenditures constituted financial support for municipal economy and environmental protection and healthcare. It results from the data analysis that the described municipalities have significant chances for systematic development in spite of numerous current problems, among which the most important one is unemployment.
