    Tourist web applications like TripAdvisor are collecting and displaying posts and comments from tourists on various locations. With today's technologies, we can easily scrap this information from the web. The goal or problem of the thesis is the identification and analysis of tourism flows based on the above mentioned posts, and comments of tourists in the area of the city size. As a solution to this problem, we created a web application prototype, which enables us to analyse tourism flows, to visualize them and to interpret them more easily. The tourism flow is a repeatable movement of tourists in the geographical area. For the analysis we collected and analysed the data for the cities of Ljubljana and Vienna. We analysed the individual city with the help of the prototype and in the end the results we obtained were presented in detail.
