How to inform better the potential visitors about the cultural offer of one area? The region Podbeskidzie, Poland, member of the DANTE partnership, has found a solution!
The initiative focuses on the promotion of the cultural assets of Podbeskidzie Region on the basis of prepared and implemented Cultural Tourism Development Plans. The preparation and evaluation phase joined together local authorities, stakeholders and SMEs operating in the field of tourism.
