DISCOVER CENTRAL EUROPE: V4 HELD AN EXHIBITION TO ATTRACT INDONESIAN TOURIST
The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Hungary, known as the Visegrad Group or V4, held promotions to invite tourists from Indonesia to visit countries in the "Central Europe" region.
Central Europe is known for its uniqueness, ranging from historical buildings to nature and culture. Many tourist destinations have been designated by UNESCO as world heritage.
Now, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Hungary, known as the Visegrád Group or V4, held promotions to invite tourists from Indonesia to visit countries in the "Central Europe" region.
Through the Discover Central Europe program, V4 which is also known as the "European Quartet", has the same roots of tradition, civilization, and culture so that these four countries have a spirit of togetherness to promote their uniqueness together.
For this reason, Discover Central Europe held its first event with the concept of a B2B partner, presenting 10 sellers from V4 and buyers from as many as 70 companies from Indonesia, at the Westin Hotel Jakarta, on October 17, 2022. The B2B partner activity brought together various companies, including travel agents, DMCs, hotels, and airlines.
Deputy Marketing Director of the Polish Tourism Organization Artur Pielaszek explained that this B2B event aims to establish brand awareness and market interest in tourism in Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia.
"The Central European region is a safe tourist destination. Tourists can visit one country to another in the V4 country alliance, thanks to the close distance and good transportation access," he said.
Each V4 member country has its own uniqueness in the fields of architecture, art, religion, folklore, and tradition, or nature.
The Czech Republic is known as the heart of Europe. With relics of historical castles, tourists can take a historical tour while seeing castles, swordsmen, and even ghosts, if lucky.
The city of Prague, the capital city, can be enjoyed by sitting relaxed in cafes while enjoying the past that lives in modern times or strolling to see the beauty of the old Baroque-style churches.
The Czech Republic is also known for its spa tours with springs that flow water that contains many minerals and can be used for treatment while enjoying the Art Nouveau-style architecture with its distinctive design.
Bratislava is the capital and gateway of the country of Slovakia. Having in common with his elder brother who used to be from the same country, the Czech Republic, Slovakia is also known for its historic buildings.
Slovakia is home to natural caves and national parks of stunning beauty. In addition, Slovakia is also known to have abundant water reserves. No wonder Slovakia has many destinations for water parks with slides and artificial waves. Not only that, Slovakia is known as a culinary destination where you can enjoy special foods with poppy seeds and vineyards.
Poland is a country that has a long history but meets modern technology. Warsaw, the capital city, is a metropolis in the heart of Europe, with centers of contemporary culture and education. However, Warsaw is also known for its historical tours—ancient buildings, castles, and Gothic-style churches that are more than 1,000 years old.
Poland also has seafront resorts in the North with beaches and piers with sunset views, plus a culinary delight of mouth-watering fresh seafood. Poland is known as a country where greenery is everywhere and has natural sites around every corner. One of the most famous is the Białowieża Forest which has been designated by UNESCO as a habitat for various wildlife.
Hungary has the largest hot springs caves and hot lakes in the world. That's why Hungary is known as a tourist destination for hot springs and spas. When ruled by the Ottoman Empire in the Middle Ages, many bathing centers were built which are still preserved until they can be visited today.
The capital city of Budapest, Hungary is also known for its historical heritage buildings such as churches and castles. One of the most famous is the Parliament Building—the largest building in Europe.
Hungary is also known as a producer of legendary wines. Many vineyard tour packages and festivals are held. One of the famous products is Tokaj Azsu, a wine that has a naturally sweet taste.
