Poland is more than Warsaw

by GilbertoZangari on February 16th, 2016

Many variables influence the number of tourists generated by a region: economic, social, demographic, etc, but basically two parameters enter in any model which pretend to explain the amount of tourist demand generated by a specific region: number of inhabitants and income.

 In this post we present, for each one of the 16 regions composing Poland, the number of inhabitants and the gross domestic product per inhabitant. If a tourist company plans to enter in the Polish market Warsaw and the surrounding region (mazowieckie) must be considered, it is the richest and has highest number of inhabitants , but Wroclaw, Poznan, Katowice and Cracow can’t be ignored.
