In this study, the impacts of global financial crisis that emerged in the USA on the touristic facilities have been examined. To this end, in September 2010, a questionnaire was conducted to tourism facilities in Bartın and Karabük (particularly Safranbolu) districts, which are both outstanding cities in the West Black Sea Region for cultural tourism; and face-to-face interviewing method was used in this questionnaire. The results of the questionnaire were analyzed with SPSS 18, a widely used analysis for data analysis in social sciences. The results showed that the touristic facilities in the region are affected from the financial crisis however; this impact is not on a destructive level. Also according to the data obtained from the questionnaire, facilities with more rooms are less affected from the crisis when compared to facilities with fewer rooms. Contrary to popular belief it is ascertained that demands of foreign tourists (particularly Japanese) to the region did not decrease during the crisis. No significant difference was ascertained between the education levels of facility executives and their level of being affected by the crisis.
