Krevo, Zalesye to make part of tourism cluster in Smorgon District

GRODNO, 18 May (BelTA) – Krevo and Zalesye, Smorgon District, will make part of a tourism cluster, BelTA learned from the coordinators of the project “Cluster approach and information technologies for local government and sustainable development of rural areas.”

Smorgon District will start the implementation stage of the project of international technical assistance with a roundtable in the Smorgon Local History Museum on 21 May. Its participants will discuss the historical and cultural potential of Smorgon District for creating the cluster.

Farmsteads, private and state-run organizations, hospitality and catering establishments will join their efforts to implement the project that envisages construction of two tourist information centers and creation of a website for booking tours.
