  • Working groups were established in all the three countries with representatives from the tourism and culture sector.

  • A series of meetings were held both on national and pan-Baltic level to collect and discuss information for the policy document.

  • The working groups collected information and viewpoints from ministeries, tourism organizations, museums and other sites, tourism companies, culture institutions and others with a direct or indirect connection to cultural tourism. Several round table discussions were organized.
