ENGLISH VERSION BELOW

Dolnośląska Organizacja Turystyczna jest stowarzyszeniem i działa w oparciu o Ustawę Prawo o stowarzyszeniach z dnia 7 kwietnia 1989 r. oraz Ustawę o Polskiej Organizacji Turystycznej z dnia 25 czerwca 1999. Stowarzyszenie pod nazwą „Dolnośląska Organizacja Turystyczna” (DOT) utworzyły władze samorządowe Dolnego Śląska w styczniu 2000 r. Organizacja ta została stworzona w wyniku przekształceń dokonywanych w obszarze zarządzania turystyką, zgodnie z normami obowiązującymi w krajach Unii Europejskiej.

W wyniku reformy administracji państwowej i powołania nowych struktur samorządu terytorialnego, samorządy przejęły zadania związane ze strategią rozwoju regionalnego, w tym także w obszarze turystyki. Powołując DOT jako pierwszą w Polsce organizację o charakterze regionalnym władze samorządowe województwa dolnośląskiego wykazały duże zainteresowanie rozwojem ruchu turystycznego na Dolnym Śląsku.

DOT is the first regional organization that deals with promotion of Lower Silesia and supports the growth of tourism in above mentioned region. DOT incorporates different members who volunteered to create together a net of assets supporting each other and contributing to constant expansion of tourism.

The organization acts in different ways and fields aiming at one goal – promotion of Lower Silesia with its cultural, culinary and natural heritage and diversity . It develops different touristic routes across the region emphasizing the role of certain assets or regional values. Among of all the touristic routes we can distinguish: European Route of Castles and PalacesRoute of Mysterious Undergrounds or the newest, culinary one: ‘Flavours of Lower Silesia’. They also own and manage the net of points of touristic information providing maps, guidebooks and kind words with any explanation needed. Such points are placed in different yet strategic locations: three of them in Wrocław (main railway station, airport and zoo), Jelenia Góra and presently being opened in Bolesławiec and Zgorzelec. Another important action they undertake is participation in various European Projects such as ECRR(European Culture Route of Reformation), Neisse Go or CAVA(Competences for Added Value Agro-food Micro-Productions: Entrepreneurial Development in Rural Areas). They try to find different ways for promotion of this beautiful region. To one of many innovative ideas belong road signs presenting touristic routes, objects or monuments. Another one is an online platform for booking various holiday lettings.

DOT is the most dynamically evolving regional organization in Poland, gaining more and more popularity thanks to versatility of activities they engage in.
