Great cultural and tourist potential of Yavoriv and Lubaczów has not been used to the full extent. Limited tourist infl ow, lack of promotion, poor state of historical infrastructure impedes tourist development in the region.

Therefore, the project aims at the improvement and the full use of tourist potential of the border region. The objective of the project will be achieved through the creation of tourist information systems for partner cities, renovation of market squares in Yavoriv and Lubaczów, conducting trainings on providing tourist information and tourist traffic service, promotional events – crossborder meetings of partner towns and communities, etc.

The project activities aims include: the boost in tourism in the Polish-Ukrainian borderland, the increase in business activity and business contacts in tourism and related sectors, the increase in local communities’ awareness as far as culture and history of partner towns are concerned and eventually tighter cooperation between border regions and partner towns of Lubaczów and Yavoriv.
