International Tourist Guide Day celebrated each year on February 21 aims to raise public awareness about the fact that tourists’ guides are cultural ambassadors of the regions they represent. This observance was established by the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA) and has been held since 1990.

At all times, communication activities should pursue the overall objective of increasing the knowledge of cross-border cooperation at the external borders of the EU and its position as a valuable, strategic tool for the EU and its neighbours.
