The concept of the Route of the Valachian culuture was initiated in a Rural cultural centre in Ochotnica Górna. The idea was supported by the Union Podhalana – academics of the Krakow schools. The idea was later transformed to descriptions, maps, spatial proposals and scientific publication in years 2007–2008. This project is spread out through the whole Carpathian region in Poland and in Slovakia. The aim is to enhance the potential of the polish-slovak cross-border area throgh the heritage of the valachian culture. The route of the culture tourism balanced by the nature values. The valachians and their culture enabled the management of Carpathians since the middle age. In paralel with the creation of the route, there will be performed acitivites in the framework of the Carapathian university focused on the importance of the Valachian culture specifically to the local community. The sustainable carpathian tourism will be promoted based on the humanitary and ecological paradigmas. The supply on tourism products will be diversified. The project will be implemented based on the induction method – building of good practice on the down-upper principle. The small-scaled project ideas will be supported, the small sections of the route will be created and merged toghether in bigger parts and structures.
