Baltathon is a series of free hackathons taking place within the BatlicMuseums: Love IT!.
Museums, touristic attractions, IT specialists and research institutions from Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania and Germany, cooperate in the project BalticMuseums: Love IT! in creating IT-enabled tools for natural and cultural heritage attractions in the South Baltic Region.
The overall goal of the project is to create services for IT-supported tourism, and its basis is exchange of the experiences between partners, visitors and users.
Baltathon participants are tasked with creating an information tool – an application based on the gamification, which will contribute to the greater interest and involvement of tourists visiting cultural institutions in the Baltic States.

- Gdynia (PL), 17-18th March 2018
- Klaipeda (LT), 14-15th April 2018
