We are taking care of the safety of tourists. The Malopolska Region is a leader in terms of the number of facilities with a safety certificate

The tourism industry in the Malopolska Region is facing new challenges and, in the interests of the safety of its guests, it implements special security measures in order to accept tourists coming to the region. More than 270 accommodation facilities in the Malopolska Region have already obtained the PTO "Hygienically safe facility" certificate, which places our region at the first position in the country.

The research of the Polish Tourist Organization shows that more than half of Poles planning to travel will be staying in Poland this year. The research also confirms that more than 80 percent of tourists, when planning a vacation, pay attention to the increased hygiene standards, increasing the level of safety in connection with the COVID-19 epidemic.

For entrepreneurs from the tourism industry, the safety of guests and employees of tourist facilities is key, therefore they used the quarantine period to adapt their facilities to specific sanitary requirements, using innovative solutions and security measures. This is evidenced by the fact that more than 270 facilities in the Malopolska Region are now certified by the Polish Tourist Organization as "Hygienically Safe Facilities".

The certificate developed by a team of experts operating at the Polish Tourist Organization in cooperation with the industry has been prepared in such a way as to serve not only large chain hotels, but also agritourism farms, small guest houses and catering facilities. It should be remembered that this is a self-certification, i.e. the owner confirms compliance with the safety requirements based on the Sanitary Inspectorate’s guidelines. Thus, by completing the form, the facility declares that it meets certain requirements for the proper protection of the facility in terms of hygiene, both in terms of employees, guests and space. In order to join the project, go to the website and fill in a dedicated facility adaptation card.

Tourists planning their vacation in the Malopolska Region can check which facilities have taken steps to ensure the safety of employees and guests staying in the facility at and use the sign "Hygienically safe facility".
