Military Heritage project kick off

16. April 2020

April 16, the virtual kick-off meeting of Estonia-Latvia joint Military Heritage project took place.

In the beginning of 2020 a new, 3-years long, Estonia-Latvia crosse border tourism project "Latvian - Estonian Common Military Heritage Tourism Product" started. Latvian - Estonian Common Military Heritage Tourism Product. The project aims to attract attention of general interest tourists to military heritage tourism which is at present in the status of niche tourism in Latvia and Estonia. It is planned to combine 150 - 170 different military heritage objects (museums, collections, expositions, buildings, structures, etc.) in Latvia and Estonia, make object improvements, develop a unified visual identity of the Military Heritage tourism product and mark the objects involved in the project with informative signs, produce printed materials - Military heritage product guide and tourism brochure. Military heritage tourism product information will also be available on the website.The project also serves educational purposes as it will improve society’s awareness and understanding of processes and events in the recent common history of Latvia and Estonia within the last 100 years. Joint marketing and promotion of the whole route territory brings more publicity and interest than efforts trying to attract attention to individual locations
The consoritum of 24 Estonian and Latvian partners is led by Latvian Country Tourism Association "Lauku Celotajs"
