Case Study 13: Lower Silesia (South West part of Poland). The Lower Silesia region has a big tourist potential; however, some areas are not well developed from the point of view of infrastructure. Urban regions would be potential magnets for cultural tourism with a distinctive ethnic mix in the region. The border region of Lower Silesia shares territory with the Czech Republic and Germany.
