BALKANIA'S TEAM

ACTIVITIES OF BALKANIA  

BALKANIA is an association for Balkan Alternative tourism which consists of eight member countries from the Balkans and Italy. Its activities include realization of projects from the domain of tourism in order to promote the entire Balkan region as a tourist destination. In addition, its purpose is to restore the positive image of the Balkans in the public eye and promote its exceptional natural, historical, cultural and anthropological heritage. The name of the association, BALKANIA, sounds like a name of a new imaginary land on the territories represented by the hospitality of their population. In fact, one of the objectives of the project as a whole is to create a virtual geographic region that includes the territories and regions which are today identified with the term BALKANS. The efforts of the association are aimed at channeling its energy to all forms that are the alternative to mass tourism, and which are in terms of the development of macro sectors identified as natural tourism, rural tourism and cultural tourism.
