Today Estonian and Latvian tourism experts and cross border tourism project managers gathered in Valga and in Zoom to discuss (post)- Covid situation for the border tourism. Military Heritage project was presented by Silja from Estonian Rural Tourism and newly printed project route maps were distributed.
