Have you ever wanted to visit Belarus, Ukraine or Poland? Well, now you shouldn’t choose as you can visit all three of them at a time.
The Bug river unites us!
A kayak tourist route will connect the Belarusian-Ukrainian-Polish border zone regions.
The Bug River Unites Us is an international project to create a two cross-bordertourist kayak trails along the Western Bug River.
The 800km long route will start in Gmina Drohiczyn in the Western Bug waters and separate in Brest district.
One of its parts will run to Sokal district in Ukraine, while the other will go along Belarus – the Mukhavets River and the Dnieper-Bug Canal, finishing in Drogichin District.
The aims of the project are to promote kayaking, preserve the natural heritage and boost tourism in three countries.
The partners are Drogichin District Executive Committee, Poland’s Drohiczyn and Ukraine’s Sokal.
The project is expected to attract €1.285 million grant from the EU, including €256,500 for Belarus.
“I am confident that the new route will attract a lot of tourists and give a boost to the infrastructure of the adjusting areas.
The project will also promote partnership relations between the residents of the three countries,” Maksim Aldanov said.
The initative is expected to be finished and fully implemented by 2020.
Project documentation for the construction of a kayak center and an observation tower is currently in development.
