The origins of the Local Tourist Organisation ‘The Beskids’ reach August of 2011, when a tourism cluster under the name of Bielsko-Biała’s Tourism Cluster Initiative was founded.

Innovative instruments and industry products, which make up the nucleus of exchanging and conveying information to the citizens and tourists visiting our city, were created and implemented within the framework of the cluster. The durability of the project was to be guaranteed by the local tourist organisation, which was developed from the cluster and derived from its experience. The founding meeting was held on the 30th of April 2015, and on the 7th of September Local Tourist Organisation ‘The Beskids’ with its residence in the city of Bielsko-Biała was officially registered.

The primary purpose of the association is to support the local tourist market and promote the Beskids and Bielsko-Biała as places rich in touristic amenities. Local Tourist Organisation ‘The Beskids’ forms a kind of common ground between the local government and the tourism industry. The association currently consists of 24 members.
