World Tourism Day (World Tourism Day) was established by the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization, UNWTO (The World Tourism Organization, UNWTO) in 1979 in the Spanish city of Torremolino (Torremolinos) and is celebrated annually on September 27th. This date was chosen due to the fact that on this day in 1970 the Charter of the World Tourism Organization was adopted.
The purpose of the holiday is to promote tourism, highlight its contribution to the economy of the world community, and develop ties between the peoples of different countries. It aims to draw the attention of the international community to the importance of tourism and its social, cultural and economic significance.
This is a holiday for everyone who at least once felt like a traveler, getting out of the everyday bustle of everyday life on the bank of a river, in a forest, in a field or in other places that planet Earth is so rich in! And, of course, this is a holiday for those who are directly involved in the tourism business: employees of travel companies, museum workers, managers and staff of hotel complexes - everyone who professionally provides a comfortable and safe vacation.
