Tourism is an important economic branch for the development of the border regions of Poland and Ukraine. The rich cultural potential of Lviv, Rzeszów and Lublin is the basis for tourism development in the region as a whole. However, the number of common initiatives is still too small. Previous contacts of project participants have proved that insufficient cross-border cooperation is a significant problem and requires resolute action.

The main goal of the project is to raise competitiveness of the partner cities in the sphere of tourism. The main assumptions of the project concern the creation of cross-border tourist route on the basis of the existing underground routes in Rzeszów and Lublin and planned underground route in Lviv. The common meetings, seminars and conferences will become an important project element and will contribute to its implementation.

Common actions implemented within the project will contribute to cooperation between local authorities in the field of cross-border tourism development. One of the results will be the increase of information level among Poland and Ukraine citizens. The project implementation will also increase the cross-border cooperation level of border regions, which will positively influence the socio-economical integration of cities-project participants and will raise the quality of life in the region.
