World Tourism Day

World Tourism Day (World Tourism Day) established by the General Assembly World Tourism Organization in 1979 in the Spanish city Torremolino (Torremolinos).

The purpose of the holiday is to promote tourism, the light of its contribution to the economy of the world community, the development of relations between the peoples of different countries.

This is a celebration of everyone who has ever felt like a traveler, having got out of everyday humdrum bustle on shore of the river, in the woods, in the fields or in other places that are so abundant in our land!

The holiday is celebrated in most countries of the world for over 30 years. In this day there are gatherings of tourists, celebrations and festivals devoted to tourism and travel business.

Interestingly, the world's first travel agency was discovered in 1841 by Thomas Cook .
