500km-long Belarusian-Russian transboundary tourism route now ready

MINSK, 28 March (BelTA) – Belarus and Russia have created a 500km-long transboundary tourism route that will take travelers into remote corners of the Lake District, BelTA learned from Nikolai Svidinsky, Head of the Biological and Landscape Diversity Office of the Belarusian Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Ministry, on 28 March.

The official explained that an action plan on cooperation between specially protected areas of Belarus and the Association of wildlife sanctuaries and national parks of Northwest Russia was signed in February 2017. The development of ecological tourism was part of the plan. “The action plan outlines a number of cooperation avenues. The tourism route around the Lake District has been created as part of the plan,” explained Nikolai Svidinsky.

There are plans to include several national parks of Belarus and Russia — Braslavskiye Ozera, Narochansky, Smolenskoye Poozerye, Sebezhsky and the Berezinsky biosphere reserve — into the route that will be about 500km long.

“Now personnel of these parks and wildlife sanctuaries are developing an end product that can be sold to tourists,” explained Nikolai Svidinsky.
