A project financed within Standard Grants programme by the International Visegrad Fund
Project category: Promotion of tourism
The project is focused on one of the most important tourist attractions in the Visegrad space. Its objective is to make the offer of medical spa and wellness more complex and synoptic, to promote this branch of tourism and to attract new clients.
Tourism is a sector reaching over state borders. The Visegrad space should be perceived as one region by tourists, especially by visitors from remote countries. So there is a great possibility that visitors would be interested in the Visegrad space as a whole. Medical spa and wellness sector plays an important role and has a long historical tradition in all Visegrad countries. The importance of this sector is increasing, especially due to promotion of a healthy lifestyle and with ageing of European population. Our goal is to support the Visegrad cooperation in the medical spa and wellness sector.
The aim is to create a multilingual database of health resorts and medical wellness facilities. The concept of the database will be based on a unified presentation of individual health resorts and medical wellness facilities in all Visegrad countries, with a possibility of comparing single facilities and finding information using different criteria.
The database will be available on a free online portal in national languages of all involved countries.
Residents and visitors to the Visegrad countries – information and motivation…
