The Jewish Suburbia was the first site on a two day ‘Study Tour’ of Bardejov and its vicinity, organized by the Šariš region office of tourism (‘ŠARIŠ“ - BARDEJOV je oblastná organizácia cestovného ruchu’) and sponsored by the ‘Slovakian Ministry of Transport, Construction and Regional Development’ and the ‘Slovak Tourist Board’.
The ‘Study Tour’ took place on October 21st and 22nd and was intended to promote the Šariš region as a go-to place for tourism. It included travel agents from Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Poland.
Thanks to the effort of Bardejov’s local tourism department, the City of Bardejov, and the BJPC’s activities, Jewish Heritage in Bardejov has become a topic to explore and learn about. This was the first time that the Bardejov's local Jewish sites were included in such a program and were described as World Heritage Sites.
