Abstract : Tourism is a dynamically developing segment, belonging to important components of the national and world economy. The Slovak Republic has a suitable starting potential for the development of tourism. The North of the Slovak Republic consists of two self-governing regions, acting as tourism regions, which are the subject of the study. Their offer in terms of tourism is diverse. At present, the development of the tourism phenomenon has been significantly slowed down by the Covid-19 pandemic. The study focuses on the Žilina self-governing region and the Prešov self-governing region, which form a unified whole in the North of Slovakia. The aim of this paper is to use analytical methods to identify and describe the performance of tourism in selected regions that form the North of Slovakia. The analysis of tourism development in the Žilina self-governing region and the Prešov self-governing region on the basis of selected statistical indicators, points to the development situation in the time horizon of 15 years. Despite the adjective most mountainous part of Slovakia, the results of the study confirm that these regions are attractive, and, in the past, they were experiencing an increase of visitors. This fact subsequently requires the expansion of services in tourism in the form of complex services and a higher degree of cooperation of entities in the region
