Description The aim of destination management is to deploy resources to be competitive, and to steward destination resources to be sustainable (Ritchie & Crouch, 2006). The former is about the ability to compete in the tourism market, and the latter is about the ability to maintain the quality of physical, social, cultural, and environmental resources while competing in the tourism market. Mowforth and Munt (2009) present key techniques in sustainable tourism, e.g. environmental impact assessment, carrying capacity calculations, limits of acceptable change, area protection or visitor management techniques. Concerning sustainable tourism, further technique is the elimination of negative externalities through their internationalization (Bieger, 2000). Nevertheless, the fundamental tool of destination management is the strategy of sustainable tourism development. This paper focuses on the application of the above mentioned techniques for managing sustainability in the Czech practice. The research identifies the most used techniques with respect to the impacts induced by tourism development in the destination. Moreover, the research reveals the obstacles to applying certain techniques.
