The Programme area is beautiful, has unspoiled nature, stunning sites and a diverse cultural and historical heritage. You can easily find places where time stands still. On both sides of the border, you can meet unique people who share various cultural and religious patterns. Here you will find also local communities implementing projects co-financed by the Poland-Belarus-Ukraine Programme, promoting local culture and history, preserving common traditions, improving the standard of living, ensuring safety and healthcare of their inhabitants. It is easy to get inspired.

So be inspired!
