The Institute of Tourism, established in 1972 by a resolution of the Council of Ministers, is the Polish research institution conducting interdisciplinary and comprehensive studies of tourism and recreation. Before 2010 it was a state-owned institution and subsequently operated as a private company for two years. Since 2012 the Institute of Tourism has been a separate organisational unit of the Vistula School of Hospitality within the Vistula Group Universities.
During the forty years of operation, the Institute of Tourism has completed a number of studies and research projects for clients such as the Polish government, voivodship authorities, national and regional organisations, banks, investors as well as tourism businesses. In cooperation with the Central Statistical Office (GUS) the Institute has participated in the improvement of the system of tourism statistics in Poland.
