About the project

 

 

Castles and fortresses in regions of V4 countries and the Western Balkans do not reach their full potential in the regional development, the diversification of tourism and in the formal education systems.

Although the castles of the region are important cultural heritage monuments and tourist destinations from a regional point of view, Castles in V4 countries and the Western Balkans do not reach their full potential in regional development, the diversification of tourism and in the formal education systems. These deficiencies can be corrected by careful planning on both regional and supra-regional levels – the aim of this project is to promote this strategic aim. The partners will foster the renewal of the castles’ roles through the project products and events:
  1. in the diversification of tourism and destination management, in the development of the regional economy as well as the development of regional brands’ promotion. The participating castles can act together in the global tourism market.
  2. in the formal education system of the region (e.g. castles and their natural environment can make online educational materials created by the spread of virtual education more experiential, authentic and effective).
  3. in strengthening common regional identity through a joint Virtual Exhibition.
  4. in supporting regular knowledge transfer and cooperation by establishing the network.
  5. in contributing to increasing the number of regional and local twinning initiatives, as well as to environmental protection and sustainable development.
The above is based on the castles represented by the selected partners and their professional activities. Their experience and skills gained so far separately will increase significantly during the project thanks to the planned cooperation.
