Abstract: Tourism is an economic component with a spectacular dynamics, the integrated analysis of this economic sector being a key element in understanding complex relationships that give sustainability to local economies with specific resources. The study aims to analyze the structural dynamics of the economic profile of spa resorts for the period 2000-2015 and identifying the role of the spa sector in the development of territorial systems with tourist functionality. In order to quantify this dynamics, a database was created at the resort level, with the main economic indicators (turnover, profit, number of companies and employees) at the four-digit NACE code (classification of activities in the national economy). Particular attention was paid to the analysis of the relationship between tourism and the other components of the economic system. The results of this study confirm the importance of spa tourism in the dynamics of local economies with specific resources and the prospects of increasing the complexity of the tourist function at the level of each analyzed territorial system. Also, the results highlight the differentiated dynamics of spa resorts as a result of the very different dynamic context they benefit from.
