Podlasie Tourist Organization Director Jadwiga D帳rowska for The Voice:

Bia造stok occupies a strategic location in both Poland and Europe, at point where East and West meet. That's why the city needs to build conference and business facilities as soon as possible. Next, the city needs to develop "cultural tourism," as we have a number of historical monuments worth showing off, such as the Branickich Palace, the historical parish church, City Hall and the museum of the countryside. We have unique regional events that can attract one-day visitors even from the capital. We have "culinary tourism" with the most delicious and original dishes. One more opportunity for the city would be to develop transit tourism: it's really worth staying for the night in Bia造stok and going for an outing to a small town in the vicinity.

One important thing is to build an airport. Many Germans who would like to visit Bia造stok are complaining about the lack of air connections to the city. Visitors from England, including bird-spotters heading for the Biebrza River that is not far away from Bia造stok, have to be picked from Warsaw airport. As long as we have no airport, Bia造stok will not become a tourist destination. Bia造stok could also do with an Esperanto center, and with opening the Branickich Palace up to tourists visits. A university campus is a good investment as many people who study here also promote the development of tourism.
