The project aimed at the reconstruction of several public recreational areas in Poland and Russia “Improvement of public areas' infrastructure to increase tourism attractiveness in the cross-border region” was signed by the Joint Managing Authority of the ENPI CBC Lithuania-Poland-Russia Programme on 02 January 2013. It was elaborated by the administration of Suwałki town (Poland) and submitted for approval under measure 2.1 – tourism development. During the 18-month implementation stage Suwałki administration plans to integrate the efforts of two Russian partners - Administration of the municipal entity "Chernyakhovsk Urban Settlement” and Administration of Guryevskiy Municipal District. They are expecting to receive the grant amount of 1,850,272.61 Euro and invest 10% of their own funds so that the total budget of the action will constitute 2,055,858.46 Euro.
