HOW WE MET

A common challenge that brought us together

We gathered around a common challenge in the cross-border area – the lack of cultural tourism manifestations that would enrich the tourism-offer and increase its attractiveness out of high season.

Moreover, the tourism contents of heritage sites are underdeveloped, there is a lack of cooperation between heritage operators and tourism stakeholders, and lack of heritage management know-how and best practices exchange among heritage operators.
