The object of tourism geography are territorial systems of tourism, its subject is analysis of their spatial structures. Chief elements of a tourism territorial system are tourist attractions, centers, nodes, regions; resorts (Kurort), spas, and their agglomerations; tourist flows; nodes of tourist facilities. In the paper, the main concepts of tourism geography are defined. The author demonstrates the principal gap in tourism geography, which is insufficient use of spatial approach in the location analysis of tourist attractions, centers, routes, flows and infrastructure. Their spatial distribution by area, spatial hierarchy, and spatial interaction between different types of tourism in the area are poorly studied. The basic directions of spatial-geographical analysis of tourism must include typology of regions and areas by the level of tourism development, tourist specialization of regions and countries, tourist regionalization and zoning of areas, tourist re-development of areas, and spatial structure of tourism in different areas, regions and countries.
