This paper aims to call attention to the natural beauties and resources in the municipality of Knic which are a great potential for development of rural tourism. Rural tourism in this region has long tradition that spans over 30 years. Households engaged in tourism as a complementary business activity in Knic municipality are situated in the villages of Borac, Zunje, Knic, Grabovac, Guberevac, Bare and Dragusica. Since the importance of rural tourism is recognized both by the state and the local authorities, the issues that rural households face are quickly solved. Therefore, the utilization of natural potentials is more efficient and the development of rural tourism in the municipality is improved.
