About us

The National Federation of Rural Tourism (FTOSZ back then) was established in 1994 to represent the interests of service providers operating in rural tourism.

FTOSZ has gone through an organizational transformation since 2001, leading it to become an association of 19 county organizations, thus now covering the entire country. They bring the nearly 2,000 hosts together. With the help of the federation’s certifying professionals, the hosts are able to provide the right quality for every service. As part of the transformation, it also assumed the “agro” adjective in the name of FATOSZ, indicating that agrotourism is an integral part of rural tourism. The most important tasks of FATOSZ, also enshrined in its bylaw, are to represent the economic and legal interests of those, who are engaged in rural tourism, to provide them with continuous and relevant information, to bring rural services to the market and to establish cooperation with national professional associations and organizations.

After the laid down process of the qualification, accommodations can get hold of a trademark, named „rural accommodation with sunflowers”. The basic purpose of the certification is to guarantee the quality of the services provided by the accommodation and to ensure, that these services meet with professional expectations, which are defined by FATOSZ.
