On the 3rd of August 2019 in Drohiczyn representatives of the Joint Technical Secretariat participated in the kayaking on the river Bug organized by the project "Bug unites us - creation of two cross-border touristic kayak trails" (acronym BugUnitesUs) chosen within the first Call for Proposals.
It was already the 8th edition of annual "500 kayaks" event along the 30 km of picturesque kayak trail from Drohiczyn to Granne. Each subsequent edition is becoming more and more popular with the participants and this year it brought together 550 kayaks.
BugUnitesUs project with a total budget of 1,415 million euros aims at creating an innovative tourist product, based on the principles of sustainable tourism and preservation of the natural heritage of the regions. The new tourist product will offer approximately 800 km of kayak trails along the river Bug, properly marked and with rest spots along the trail. Within the project two water trails will be created as well as 8 view towers along the whole kayak trail to observe unique scenery.
