Preservation and Promotion of the Cultural and Historical Heritage in Daugavpils City and Grodno City

Short title: D-G HERITAGE


PRIORITY 1: PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
Measure 1.4: Preservation and promotion of cultural and historical heritage, promotion of cross border tourism

Beneficiary: Daugavpils City Council (Daugavpils, Latvia)

Partner: Department of Ideological Work, Culture and Youth Affairs of Grodno City Executive Committee (Grodno, Belarus)

Associates: Daugavpils University (Daugavpils, Latvia); Yanka Kupala Grodno State University (Grodno, Belarus)

PROBLEM: The potential of Daugavpils and Grodno historical and cultural heritage - Dinaburg Fortress and Grodno historical centre – is not used in full capacity. Sufficient problems are lack of tourist infrastructure and informational system, and poor qualification of tour guides. Grodno city is the largest centre of handicraft industry in former Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Till today there are no special conditions for preserving traditional crafts and skills, and for transferring knowledge and secrets of mastery to the next generations. There is also lack of information about cross-border heritage: sites, crafts, traditions etc.

OBJECTIVES: To contribute to the preservation of cultural-historical heritage and promotion of tourism through the implementation of joint actions.

 

RESULTS&OUTPUTS: During the project, the 1st Coastal Lunette of Daugavpils (Dinaburg) Fortress was reconstructed in Latvia and Grodno Regional Heritage Centre was reconstructed in Belarus.

Partners also developed joint heritage identity elements and exchanged experience and knowledge among heritage preservation and tourism promotion specialists. A number of tourism conferences, cultural heritage seminars, trainings and craftsmen plain airs were organised in Daugavpils and Grodno.

2 international scientific expeditions were organised with participation of around 300 heritage and tourism experts, history students, teachers and craftsmen from the two countries.
