Polish travel agencies to study potential of Grodno Oblast health spas

GRODNO, 20 January (BelTA) – Polish travel operators will study the potential of health resorts in Grodno Oblast during their visit to Belarus on 20-21 January, BelTA learnt from head of the Grodno Oblast Department under the National Recuperation and Health Resort Treatment Center Anatoly Gonchar.

The visit has been organized by the Grodno Oblast Department under the National Recuperation and Health Resort Treatment Center. Heads of travel companies from various Polish cities, including big and well-known firms, will study proposals and potential of the health resorts in the near-border region of Belarus. The theme raised interest among Polish representatives when they were presented the relevant materials. The guests will visit a number of health spas in the oblast and meet with the Grodno Oblast authorities. Long-term agreements are expected to be signed with Polish travel agencies.

The event is aimed at popularizing tourist services among Poles, increasing the number of Polish visitors in the region’s health resorts.

According to Anatoly Gonchar, Grodno Oblast health resorts have earlier had an experience of cooperation with Polish travel agencies. The number of Polish visitors in Grodno Oblast health resorts has recently dwindled. The region intends to resume fruitful cooperation.

There are 10 health resorts in Grodno Oblast: Radon, Alfa Radon, Ozerny, Porechye, Energetik, Neman-72, Zhemchuzhina, Lesnaya Polyana, Praleska, Raduga. Over 56,100 people stayed in the region’s health resorts in 2015 (which is 6% down from 2014). About 14,000 holidays were booked by foreign citizens (23.2% down). The average health resort occupancy made up about 77% last year.
