International Tourist Guide Day is celebrated on February 21. In 1990, it was celebrated for the first time in the world. The first celebration in Poland took place in Krakow in 1997. Since then, it has been celebrated annually. The idea behind the International Tourist Guides Day is free guided tours. This day is to show the work of the guide to local communities and local authorities. It is to make people aware of the role of guides in serving tourists, in creating the image of the city and region.
