The purpose of the Project is to increase the tourism potential for socio-economic growth and sustainable urban development of the Participating Cities with a focus on preservation and development of cultural heritage to drive tourism related revenues and improve the municipal economy. The Project envisages (i) restoration of cultural heritage sites in order to create tourist focal points, (ii) construction and modernization of related auxiliary infrastructure, and (iii) development of marketing strategies in the Participating Cities.

The funds shall be used, inter alia, to: rehabilitate cultural heritage sites, including those owned by the regions and municipalities; reconstruct and construct other sites to recover lost historic development patterns in the protected zones; adapt the rehabilitated, reconstructed and newly constructed facilities, including installation of necessary service and support equipment; perform landscaping works and local improvements; and upgrade related utilities and transport infrastructure.
