    Video presents 2 projects supporting the development of rural tourism financed through EAFR in mountain rural areas in Slovakia. It emphasizes the development of two small businesses: rebuilding and equipping a family house into a guest house, and constructing a brand new touristic facility designed to use local thermal spring as heating system. Both projects are meeting some of the RDP objectives: creating local jobs and making the rural area a nice place to live in and to visit.
