PROJECT „DEVELOPMENT OF TOURIST ATTRACTION “KALETO TECTONIC RIDGE”
Reselets Village, where project attractions are located, is a natural tourist center of Cherven Bryag Municipality. In addition to historical artifacts, the region is rich in natural sites (cultural and historical sites, caves, rock formations, etc.) which make it one of the most beautiful villages in the municipality.
The Project goal is the development of the leading
tourist attraction - “Kaleto Tectonic Ridge” and the associated site
“Reseleshki Kukli” united in an integrated tourist route, for utilization
of the potential of Cherven Bryag Municipality and Reselets Village
regions as attractive destinations of sustainable eco-tourism.
The Project is fully consistent with the priorities of Cherven Bryag Municipality, the key one being the development of alternative tourisms (ecological, rural, cultural, religious, etc.). The precondition for this is the huge number of natural and cultural-historical phenomena on municipal territory. Project implementation will contribute also to a more uniform distribution of tourism benefits on a national scale since it envisages investment in, and promotion of, attractions in a region where the rich tourist potential is not sufficiently publicized or utilized.
All planned investment measures on the territories of the natural sites are fully consistent with the requirements of environment and biodiversity preservation law, since these are part of the EU-wide network of nature protection areas NATURA 2000.
