Students from the University of Northampton’s Business School spent four days in Poland to explore how a town is developing its reputation for international tourism.
The group of MA International Tourism Development students, plus accompanying staff, visited Lublin earlier this month where they enjoyed a presentation on Polish history, a tour of the historic old town and its religious buildings, castles and underground tunnels.
They also visited the University’s partner institution, Vincent Pol University, and an emotive exploration of the Holocaust memorial in Majdanek.
Justin Lance, Subject Leader of Leisure and Languages, said: “Lublin was a perfect destination for our students to experience a culture rooted within a wealth of historical events.
“This proved particularly thought-provoking in terms of the recent history of the region as a basis for the development of international tourism.”
