Abstract: <jats:p>The purpose of this paper is creating distinctive value proposition and recognizable destination brand through integration of different activities and actors in the segment of tourism by application of a business model tool. To illustrate the application of the “Business model canvas” tool, it was taken a case study of the city of Ohrid, which is one of the most beautiful tourist destination on the Balkan Peninsula, protected by UNESCO, but at the same time confronted with many problems in tourism, as many tourist destinations in the world. Besides, the application of the methodology of “business model canvas”, we carried out interviews and an empirical survey on “creators” and “consumers” of tourism in the city of Ohrid. The results of the overall research, the created tourist model of Ohrid, as well as the supported research instruments, interviews and empirical survey bring some interesting ideas and solutions for many contemporary issues in tourism, such as: integrated tourist offer that lasts 12 months, combined with diverse types of tourism, highly professional service and shared values, widely differentiated accommodation with clear targeting and positioning strategy, as well as focused tourist zones that cover certain type of tourism for a pleasant stay and experience e of tourists with necessary supporting services for the full functionality.
