CzechTourism opens new centre to encourage tourists into the regions

19-12-2007

The government agency CzechTourism has opened a visitor centre on Prague’s Old Town Square to promote the Czech Republic’s regions to foreign tourists. The centre is set to provide foreign visitors with information on destinations outside of Prague. It will also organise day trips and longer stays for tourists in the Czech regions. CzechTourism has identified the stimulation of tourism outside of Prague as one of its key priorities in recent years. This is the second such centre in Prague, set up to attract tourists into the regions. Over 60% of tourists visiting the Czech Republic never set foot outside of the capital, suggest CzechTourism’s statistics.
