Turystyka w kreatywnej wsi – studium przypadku wsi Dobków na Pogórzu Kaczawskim
Tourism in a creative village – a case study of Dobków in the Kaczawskie Foothills
Languages of publication
Dobków is a medium-size village in the West Sudetes which for long did not benefit from tourism development in the region. Owing to the activity of local leaders, numerous initiatives have been implemented in Dobków since 2005, aimed at the revitalization of the rural space, promotion of local traditions and tourist values, and creation of attractive tourist products. While developing the latter, major emphasis is put on regional geoheritage, especially the legacy of ancient volcanism, and visitor’s experience of rural environment authenticity. Nowadays the main effort is directed towards adapting an old farmstead for a centre of regional education, which – after completion – will serve as a major visitor centre in the region. The case study of Dobków shows that consequent expansion of educational space is among the key components of creativity in a village.
