Horyniec-Zdroj (PL) and Morshyn (UA) - the joint development of health resorts.


On 30 June 2013, in Horyniec-Zdroj, a Conference called 'The cooperation and exchange of experiences of spa municipalities' was held within the framework of the project called 'The development of Horyniec-Zdroj and Morshyn health resorts as a chance to activate the Polish-Ukrainian borderland' (Agreement No. IPBU.01.02.00-18-353/11-00). The project received funding in the amount of EUR 3 910 173.8.

The meeting was chaired by Horyniec-Zdroj municipality (lead partner of the project) and representatives of the town of Morshyn from Ukraine as well as the Regional Development Agency and the European Cooperation from Lviv (partners of the project). The conference was also attended by the representatives of health resort treatment from Horyniec-Zdroj and Morshyn as well as the invited guests representing the institutions involved in health resort treatment.

The aim of the conference was to present the target groups with the main objectives of the project and establish cooperation between the health resorts from the two places. The project involves revitalisation of two Spa Parks on the Polish and Ukrainian side as well as joint marketing activities aimed at increasing the number of domestic and foreign tourists in the two partner towns.

After the conference, junior football teams met on the sports stadium in Horyniec-Zdroj. During the match of friendship, the young representatives of Morshyn turned out to be better.

The project is co-financed by the European Union under the Cross-border Programme Poland-Belarus-Ukraine 2007-2013.
