"THE PROJECT OF CULTURAL AND ETHNOGRAPHIC TOURISM DEVELOPMENT IN THE CRIMEA: DESIGHN AND PROMOTION OF ETHNOCULTURAL ROUTES" IS NEARING COMPLETION


Simferopol, Ukraine - June 10, 2011 - June 10, 2012

Non-governmental organization "Information and Methodological Center for Inter-cultural Education and Tolerance," in cooperation with the Crimean Ethnographic Museum complete the implementation of "THE PROJECT OF CULTURAL AND ETHNOGRAPHIC TOURISM DEVELOPMENT IN THE CRIMEA: DESIGHN AND PROMOTION OF ETHNOCULTURAL ROUTES". The project was implemented with the support of the USAID Local Investment and National Competitiveness (LINC) project.

Crimea has always been a multinational region and a region of influence of the major Eurasian empires - Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Russian. There was an active mix of different tribes and ethnic groups, which formed the new community. The prosperity of the Crimea during all periods of its history was closely linked with the fruitful cooperation and mutual influence of different cultures, rather than the contribution of any one ethnic group or culture. And the Crimean multiculturalism is now the key to its stability and prosperity in the future. Today, the peninsula attracts tourists not only for its natural resources, but also by its rich historical and cultural heritage.

The main objective of this project was to create a positive image of the Crimea as a platform for dialogue between cultures and enhance its tourism and investment attraction through the promotion of cultural and ethnographic heritage and its inclusion in the system of mass tourism, and extention of the tourist season through the diversification of offer.

During the year, project experts Margaryta Aradzhyoni, Ph.D., head of the department of ethno-confessional studies at the Crimean Branch of the Institute of Oriental Studies, Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Chairman of the Board of NGO "Information and Methodological Center for Inter-cultural Education and Tolerance," and Yuri Laptev, the director of the Crimean Ethnographic Museum have developed 27 historical, cultural, archaeological, cultural and ethnographic routes.

The project included data collection, photographing of preserved cultural and ethnographic heritage, as well as an assessment of its condition and opportunities for the use as tourist sights. The product developed is rather modern and attractive. The routes are presented in the form of special booklets flyers. Wide dissemination of information about the content of the main routes and main sights will be provided through tourist information centers and Internet resources. It will enable tour operators, travel agents, tour guides and tourists traveling on their own to use these routes to make a holiday in the Crimea more interesting and informative.
