Supporting activities for the development and promotion of a Culinary Trail in the Opolskie Voivodeship, combined with capacity building for its members.
The Opolskie Voivodeship is a lesser known tourist destination, in comparison with the neighbouring regions of Upper and Lower Silesia. However, its rich and multicultural tradition offers significant opportunities for the development of the region, if actively promoted through a culinary trail.
RDP support was used to finance diverse activities such as training sessions, study trips in Poland and the Czech Republic, hosting journalists and culinary bloggers in the Opolskie Voivodeship and publishing a guidebook. Thanks to these activities, the Opolski Bifyj Culinary Trail has become a more recognisable ’tourist brand’ not only in the region, but also more widely throughout Poland.
As a result of the project, the first culinary trail network of this type was created in the Opolskie Voivodeship, bringing catering, accommodation and tourism businesses together.
The active promotion of the culinary heritage of the Opolskie Voivodeship, will contribute to protecting it from being lost.
The project has a positive contribution to the balanced territorial development of the area and will improve its competitiveness.
The project activities significantly increased the involvement of residents in their local communities and in initiatives for the development of their area.
