The object of research is the totality of the cultural heritage of Boykivshchyna as a tourist resource. The subject of research is forms of involvement of elements of cultural heritage of Boykivshchyna in tourist activity.

Elements of cultural heritage are of interest, including samples of folk art.  The positive and negative aspects of the use of cultural heritage in tourism and the role of territorial communities in the promotion of elements of cultural heritage are analyzed.

Results. The authors proposed forms of using elements of tangible and intangible cultural heritage in tourism on the example of Boykivshchyna: holding ethno-festivals, organizing tours, conducting master classes on the production of applied arts in museums and cooking traditional dishes in restaurants, organizing animation programs with elements of folk art.
