Tourists compete in discovering Prešov Region, within a successful project

THE TOURISM competition Discover Prešov Region / Objavuj Prešovský  kraj has incited tourists and hikers to travel around the region.

The competition is placed within the let Us Discover / Objavujme mobile application available for free for Android and iOS platforms, while a total of 250 tips for trips are prepared, one of the creators of the app Ľubomír Karas told the TASR newswire.

Participants get points for localising at some selected points in this area, and they fight for each point. It seems that the regional centre, city of Prešov, is the most popular localisation site (especially its centre), followed by High Tatras, wooden churches, but also some distant sites like various springs, or military cemeteries. Some places are less popular and the tallest peak in Slovakia, Gerlachovský štít, has not been localised as of late August.

The competition, organised by the Regional Tourism Organisation North-east of Slovakia / KOCR Severovýchod Slovenska, in cooperation with the Poďmevon.sk website, wants to offer well-known as well as almost unknown or forgotten sites worth visiting, Karas added. It also includes a list of facilities that give the contestants various rebates for clothes, accommodation or wellness services.

Moreover, each point includes interesting information – making the app also a valuable tourist guide.

The competition is continuing, until September 15, and the winners keep changing every day. More information can be found at the www.severovychod.sk website.
