The mobile application “Select the destination. Gorlickie-Sądeckie” is a proposal for active and cultural tourism in one of the most interesting parts of Małopolska. Here, we can find not only a series of attractive sites in the region, but also many tourist routes and a database of events taking place in the Gorlicko-Sądecki subregion.

A very important feature of the application is the user geolocation – thanks to the GPS technology, people using the application may check not only their location, but also to see where a specific site may be found. It also contains a planner useful for visiting the selected sites. The application works online and offline on smartphones and mobile devices with the iOs and Android systems.
The application has been issued by the Małopolska Tourism Organisation, thanks to the funds from the Swiss project “Local initiatives for the regional development of the Gorlicki and Nowosądecki districts”. The application has been developed by Amistad Group based on the original Treespot technology.
