Short description of the municipal partnership project
The project aims to expand domestic and inbound tourism by creating new tourist sites related to the history of the Volyn Czechs, who lived in the southern part of the Rivne region more than a hundred years ago.

The project will help partner municipalities to use their historical heritage to intensify tourism within their communities, attract domestic and foreign visitors and will provide for the following:

1) Creation of new tourist attractions, such as an ethnographic museum of the estate Hulcha in the village of Gilcha, and arrangement of historical and cultural space in the premises of the former Czech school in the village of Martynivka. For this purpose, research work be done, premises will be renovated, and an ethnic estate will be built with virtual models of settlements developed.

2) Development and promotion of 5 tourist routes by working with travel agencies and guides, preparing the guide Czech settlements in Rivne region, and creating a tourist portal Czech settlements in Volyn.
