Where will your idea take place?

Lyntupy, Belarus, Postavy, Belarus, Švenčionys, Lithuania

Why does Europe need your idea?

What is your impact?

People of Svjantjany region know their history and share the pride of belonging to. The region is attractive for tourists who come to visit topical excursions (like Belarusian Versailles, pagan places and so on) and local people don't move away to other regions to live, they stay and earn money from what they create.
People will be grateful for knowing history and making the region more sustainable.

How do you get there?

1. Search for objects of cultural heritage
2. Create topical tourist guides and routes
3. Branding of the region / explain to local people how they will win from tourists
4. Gather and processing information (web-site, advertisement)
5. Launch information campaign
