Tourism: Future of the Region? [ONLINE EVENT]


The border region of Saxony-Czechia-Poland is a treasure chest of a rich cultural heritage and beautiful landscapes. Yet, infrastructural problems and the fringe position of the border triangle within the three countries have so far made it impossible for the region to fully utilize its potential. What can be done to boost tourism in the region?
