The Roztocze region, with its unique geography and nature, requires cross-border activities which could boost its recognition. Situated across the Polish-Ukrainian border, it is a multicultural area with great bio-diversity, very valuable in terms of nature. However, both Polish and Ukrainian sides are aware of low ecological awareness, poor technical condition of tourist infrastructure and lack of adequate promotion of the Roztocze brand. Now the tourist services are not standardized and tourism is not subjected to cohesive Polish-Ukrainian promotion which could make the Roztocze brand more recognizable. The overall objective of the project is promotion and preservation of natural heritage through improving tourist infrastructure, creating tourist products which would strengthen partnership cooperation and enhancing the recognition of Roztocze as shared natural heritage. The expected changes resulting from the projects are better tourist infrastructure (building and improvement of a 327 km long cycle route), reducing environmental degradation, introducing spatial order in adjacent areas, building the accompanying infrastructure, and enhancing the tourist potential of the area.
