The natural and cultural heritage in the area aren’t exploited at real value especially in the territory of LAG «Calafat ». Also the local products don't have access in the market chains, they are promoted only in local markets, many of these local products are known only in the specific areas. We aim to create and promote a representative tourist product for the area bringing high value to the local products and cultural/natural heritage.
The main objective of the project is to create a new tourism product and to promote it throughout the whole European Union, allowing a large number of people to get in touch with the local cultural traditions.
Also the strategy chosen regarding tourism is built around the “nature-culture -tradition” concept. We aim to promote our biodiversity ( Natura 2000 around the Danube for example), our culture and local products.
