THE PROJECT

The project is an initiative which brings together non-capital large cities from the Visegrad countries. Within the project a 4-day workshop is organised in Debrecen with the participation of tourism professionals from V4 countries’ second cities – Brno in Czech Republic, Debrecen in Hungary, Kosice in Slovakia and Krakow in Poland – with the aim to build relationships, share knowledge and experience about destination management and tourism marketing, and lay down the foundations of a long-term strategic partnership.

The project recognizes that partner cities share not only neighbourhood and similar geopolitical conditions but also common history and culture. The project focuses on similarities but at the same time aims at exploring differences to be exploited for touristic purposes. Regarding that tourism plays a significant role in the economies of V4 countries, the co-operation of V4 non-capital large cities can help contribute to a bigger tourist flow to these destinations thus to the economic growth of the V4 region in general. The project aims at strengthening ties, sharing knowledge, and joining forces in order to promote Visegrad values through tourism both in domestic and international markets.

V4 NON-CAPITAL CITIES TOURISM WORKSHOP


The project is implemented with the support of the International Visegrad Fund within the INTERNATIONAL VISEGRAD FUND's Small Grants Program.
