Concepts related to sustainable tourism development like community-based tourism, responsible-sustainable tourism, ecotourism, cultural tourism, and many others, have been introduced and investigated. Nowadays, the significance of geographical contexts of tourism research, policy, and business practice increases. Thus, the goal of this research is to discuss the phenomena of sustainable tourism development in the geographical context. The locality becomes the main consideration of this enquiry, and the spatial justice is introduced as the main goal of sustainable tourism development. The main research method applied in this enquiry is a case study. To address investigated relation between sustainable tourism development and spatial justice, the results from the case study research on thematic Goth Village in Masłomęcz (East-South Poland) were exploited.
