Poland: European City of Culture 2016 – the reopening of a canal


At ITB Berlin in Hall 15.1 numerous exhibitors will be inviting visitors to take a tour of Poland. Besides Poland’s voivodeships a number of tour operators and health industry providers will also be represented. This year’s show features a completely new hall layout, with exhibitors grouped under various headings. One of them is ’Sightseeing, discovering and entertainment’ where the focus is on the things one can experience in large cities. Other headings include ’Leisure action’, ’Calm and relaxation’, ’Ecology and good food’. Multimedia presentations will provide an impression of what awaits visitors to Poland.
This year Wrocław (formerly Breslau) in Lower Silesia will be putting on a big display. At ITB Berlin it will appear in its role as the European City of City of Culture 2016. Next year hundreds of big and small events will be attracting visitors to the city on the River Oder. The highlights are already on show in Berlin.
This year ’active holidays’ will be among the key topics. ’Green Velo’ is the name of a new 2,000-kilometre long cycle path that takes visitors across five Polish voivodeships. The first sections are due to open this year.
Among the attractions at the show will be a model of the Kanał Elbląski in Masuria’s western region. Built over 150 years ago it was closed to shipping for extensive renovation for a period of two years and is due to open again in the spring. The model will demonstrate how ships are drawn so that they can navigate height differences on the canal.
On 4 March at 11.30 a.m. in the Palais am Funkturm a conference will take place on the subject of medical tourism to Poland.
