Objectives and results of the project:

The partners’ locality is situated in the protected areas with great potential and natural and cultural heritage. However the potential of this heritage isn’t fully used, a lot of inhabitants don’t know the natural and cultural values of their own region, not speaking about the transboundary region, although their geographical location is very close. This project is aimed to help to explore this heritage, to get to know it, to promote it and therefore to intensify the use of it. The partners of this project want to build a transboundary trail for inhabitants and visitors, that would run represent our mutual cultural and natural heritage. In the land registers of each partner are partial biking trails, in the previous program season, they built a trail through Krásna nad Kysucou, through Bystrická dolina to Milówki. We want to continue the said project and build a loop biking trail through villages Dunajov, Oščadnica and Rajcza. There will be different features of tourism infrastructure on the trail, that will give information about cultural and natural heritage (information panels), that will make it easier to use the heritage – touristic outlook places, paths, parking spots etc. By creating infrastructural background for free-time activites and realization of a pilot biking day after building the trail, we will achieve increase of number of tourists in this locality.
