The contribution deliminates an experience as the nearest contents of recreation. It is the term of the experience that definers recreation as collection of heterogeneous activities. The connection between recreation and geographical systems creates the necessity to implicate a new special branch - the geography of recreation. The research of objective laws of recreation systems, their creation and development, the application of quantitative methods and the delimination of the subject of study are the main tasks for further research. The importance of connections between the geography of recreation and nongeographical disciplines (economics, architecture, sociology, psychology and hygiene) has been increasing.
