Abstract [en]

This is a study with the purpose of looking over the pattern of consumption of people visiting tourist attractions associated with war, death and suffering; dark tourism. The demarcation of the work has been to look into attractions inside the Stockholm area which do commercial business with the three aspects of dark tourism. With the help of qualitative and quantitative methods, the authors have collected the material needed for the purpose of the study. These qualitative methods have been interviews with visitors of dark tourism and the commercial business themselves, and with observations on three different attractions in Stockholm. The quantitative method, together with some qualitative aspects, has been a poll, with in-depth questions, to get an understanding of the subject at hand. The places for the observations was Stockholm Ghost Walk, the Vasa museum, and the Army museum. As a result of the study, the authors learned that most visitors didn’t know about dark tourism and that they were, in fact, visiting attractions that was called dark. The phenomena itself was unknown to most of them even though they all had visited at least one place under the dark tourism phenomena.

Abstract [sv]

Detta är en undersökning vars syfte är att se över människors konsumtionsmönster på platser associerade med krig, död och lidande; mörk turism. Avgränsningen för arbetet har varit till de attraktioner i Stockholmsområdet som gör kommersiellt nöje av dessa tre aspekter. Med hjälp av kvalitativa och kvantitativa metoder har författarna samlat in det material de behöver för arbetets syfte. Dessa har varit kvalitativa intervjuer med besökare och aktörer på den mörka turism-marknaden i Sverige och observationer på tre attraktioner, samt en kvalitativ och kvantitativ enkät som förarbete för att få en förståelse kring ämnet. De platser som observerades var Stockholm Ghost Walk i Gamla Stan, Vasamuseet samt Armémuseet. Resultatet visar att mörk turism inte alltid är uppenbart som fenomen för besökaren, även om det är ett fenomen som ofta besöks.
