This paper examines the international tourism receipts dynamics in the euro area. The basic aims of this paper  are: firstly,  to create  a relatively simple chaotic growth model of  the  international tourism receipts that is capable of generating stable equilibria, cycles, or chaos, and secondly, to analyze the international tourism receipts growth stability in the period 1995-2015 in the euro area. This paper confirms the existence of  the stable growth of the international tourism receipts in the euro area in the observed period. 

Key words
