Our country is very rich in terms of intangible (immaterial) cultural heritage elements as well as tangible (material) cultural heritage elements. With the "Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage", which had been accepted by UNESCO in 2003 and to which our country became a party in 2006, our intangible cultural heritage values also began taking place more in both national and international platforms. On the other hand, in the tourism sector, seen to be a savior for the economic prosperity of a developing country like ours, new approaches, changes, transformations, variety, differentiation, etc. are needed. The main goal of this study is to find whether intangible cultural heritage elements can be used in the tourism sector. It will also be evaluated with a scientific perspective through our study how they are used in the case that they are used and how they should be used in the case that they are not used.
