Tallinn as a tourist destination is among the ten finalists of the ‘European Capital of Smart Tourism’ competition.
The aim of the competition is to recognise outstanding
achievements in the development of European urban tourism.
Tourist cities are assessed in four categories: accessibility,
sustainable development, digitalisation, and the inclusion of
cultural heritage and creativity in the tourism industry. The
ten finalists must show their success in all four categories.
The competition is held between 38 cities from 19 European
countries. In addition to Tallinn, the finalists include
Brussels, Helsinki, Ljubljana, Lyon, Malaga, Nantes, Palma,
Poznan, and Valencia.
The winners of the title ‘European Capital of Smart Tourism’
will be announced in November. In addition to the two cities
that qualify for the title, four cities will also be awarded
for their achievements in the four aforementioned categories.
The aim of the competition is to recognise sustainable and
innovative developments of tourism in cities. Tourism is a
rapidly developing industry with many challenges in service
design and in the digital sector, but also in sustainable
development and better integration of creative industries.
