Our organisation, the Nyíregyházi Turisztikai Nonprofit Kft. (Nyíregyháza Non-profit Touristic Ltd.) is responsible for collaboration between the touristic operators in the region: the owners and operators of the touristic attractions and services, local governments, civil society organisations, institutions, and businesses directly or indirectly associated with tourism.
In our office we can provide tourists with up-to-date information, and we also assist the touristic service providers operating in the region and that have joined the TDM (Tourism Destination Management) organisation. We organise trainings and study-tours to our members, represent them at travel fairs, advertise them on our website, we provide them with access to professional materials, and give them professional advice so that they can successfully participate in tenders.
One of our main tasks is to collect the values and beauties of the Nyírség region and Nyíregyháza, and to compile destination packages and offers. It is a key task to market these, promote them in various newspapers, publications, on TV, radio, websites and billboards, in Hungary and in the surrounding countries as well.

The Tourinform Sóstógyógyfürdő office has been operated by Nyíregyházi Turisztikai Nonprofit Kft. since 2012. In 2021, instead of the former Water Tower, the Tourinform office moved opposite the entrance to the Sóstó Zoo. The choice of the new location was a conscious one, as the country’s most visited rural tourist attraction attracts many domestic and foreign guests, who can receive extensive information about the attractions of the city and the region.
It was also possible to purchase bicycles and electric scooters, so now they can be rented in Sóstógyógyfürdő to suit your needs. You can also buy souvenirs in the new office. Fridge magnets, postcards, as well as t-shirts, mugs, key chains and other items can be found.
