Languages of publication
The cross-border tourism product is a compilation of elements of the tourism potential of the cross-border area that cater to the diverse needs of tourists. The functioning of the cross-border tourism product is determined by many different natural and anthropogenic factors, such as accessibility, type and quality of tourism infrastructure, and quality of the natural environment. The process of creating the total tourism product involves many entities acting on both sides of the border. These include regional and local tourist organizations, local government units, and stakeholders interested in the development of tourism. Among the areas that could shape a total tourist product are West Pomerania in Poland and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in Germany. In the process of developing a total tourism product, the key role is played by entities acting at the regional level. However, owing to the diversity of the administration systems in Poland and Germany, the degree of their involvement in the creation of the cross-border tourism product is different. The purpose of the paper is to identify entities involved in the process of creating the cross-border tourism product and to determine their role in the case study of West Pomerania and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
