Abstract: The article presents selected conditionings of the educational function of senior tourism on the basis of a study carried out among a group of Wroclaw seniors. The theoretical introduction defines key tourism functions, with particular emphasis on the educational, cognitive, and attitude-shaping functions. Both the senior group and senior tourism were defined in the context of their participants, motivations, needs, season, etc. The empirical part presents the group of seniors who underwent the tests. The majority of participants were aged 60–79 years. The authors indicated the preferred forms of tourist recreation, and characterized the main motivations, ways of traveling, length of the journey itself, and major goals. Attention was drawn to the economic situation of seniors in connection with its subjective perception; the impact of the latter on the willingness to undertake tourist activity was highlighted.
