The app has also been promoted at the main festivals organised within the project and to tour operators. It can be accessed at the following link: dar and on Google Play (name: VideleTour).

The main investment objectives within the project are represented by Reconstruction of town park in Videle and two project sites in Bulgaria, namely Lyaskovets Town Park – “Eco-zone for recreation, arts and sports in the town of Lyaskovets” and “Reconstruction of the open space and green park around the Community centre in the village of Kozarevets into a zone for creative attractions”.
