When facing the challenge of preserving cultural heritage for future generations, it becomes important to talk about heritage transformations and the perspectives of these transformations. Thus, this integrative review article seeks to discuss heritage transformations and their perspectives for future tourism development, by analyzing various theoretical and empirical literature sources. The results of this integrative review analysis highlighted the importance of paying attention to the three layers of perspectives: personal, local, and regional. Thus, the discussion opened up the following “IPR” theoretical insights: heritage transformations—“I”—as personal transformations, heritage transformations—“Place”—as local perspective, heritage transformations—“R”—as regional perspective. It has revealed that all three discussed heritage transformation perspectives are experiencing significant connections. The biggest challenge of current and future heritage transformations is a dependence on being constantly interconnected (individually, locally, regionally) and on being constantly influenced by the world’s challenges and development trends. When looking towards future tourism development, the interconnected layers of heritage transformation perspectives could lead to the constant integration and creation of interwoven tourism values and experiences.
