The project entitled 'Presentation of
castle and museum trail, cultural - historical attractions
of the Baltic Sea region'
Lead Partner: the Association of Communes 'Polish Gothic Castles'
Participants of the project: the History
Museum of Lithuania Minor in Klaipeda and the Museum of the
History of Bagrationovsk
The aim of the project is to create a trail,
which will connect castles and museums located in the transborder
area of three countries (Poland, Russia - the Kaliningrad
Oblast, and Lithuania). By creating a network of cooperation
between the three partners, the project intends to promote
the cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea area, as an attractive
tourist destination owing to its universal historical and
The material evidence of such values consists of the rich
collections of the local museums; it is also reflected by
the scientific and didactic activities as well as cultural
and tourist-oriented programmes conducted at the castles and
museums included in the trail. This shows that it is worth
finding more about those castles and museums, both by the
inhabitants of the eleven administrative communes of the Association,
where the Gothic castles are situated, and by tourists visiting
those communes and all other people interested in the history
of this region.
For the purpose of extending the knowledge about the trail,
the project intends to publish maps and brochures and to show
them on the tourist industry market. In addition, we plan
to start a multi-lingual Internet site showing the trail of
the castles and museums.
Increasing the number of visitors at the above objects will
be one of the principal objectives of the project.
The project is co-financed from the funds
of the European Regional Development Fund, under the framework
of the Lithuania, Poland and Kaliningrad Region of the Russian
Federation Neighbourhood Programme INTERREG IIIA.
