TouristPath wants to be the world’s largest tourism database with social travel planning thrown in


Frustrated with the lengthy process of trying to research travel on the internet TouristPath‘s founders decided to attempt organising the sector via a massive travel and tourism information database.

The ultimate aim for the two-man team, Radoslaw Pujan and Dawid Dziewulski, was to provide a tool with so much information users wold not have to go elsewhere while also enabling them to plan a trip in under an hour.

The startup, as yet unfunded, says it sees no competition on the horizon although acknowledges sites such as ViaMichelin which, it claims, offer basic functionality and not a great user experience.

Going forward the revenue model will be hotel bookings, restaurant and hotel listings, potentially banner advertising and group itinerary planning services once a critical mass of users has been achieved.

Q&A with founder Radoslaw Pujan

Describe what your start-up does, what problem it solves (differently to what is already out there) and for whom?

It provides touristic information in any country in the world, in many languages. Users can easily see what is of interest in a particular area. Many online tools focus only on big cities but we also include small villages or even things hidden deep in a forest. The service can also provide maps of very specialized tourist attractions such as only Art nouveau architecture, street art, or Gothic churches.

And, it also helps users plan trips within minutes. Just choose location, number of days, domain of interest and it will prepare a map and track you should follow. Travellers can also create trips and share it with their friends to plan trip together. Then print it and enjoy the holidays. Read more.
