Project Explore Balts continues project Balts’ Road with activities which will increase awareness, recognition and exploration of Balts. Balts’ Road itinerary is 2145 km long, connected by irregular loops or extending lines that include territories once inhabited by Curonians (~ 790 km), Semigallians (~ 620 km) and Sellonians (~ 735 km) in Lithuania and Latvia.
Balts’ Road combines unique natural and cultural objects such as Balts’ cult areas: springs, trees, forests and lakes, exclusive monuments, modern interesting places, educational programs offered by craftsmen and local cuisine.
One of the aims of the project is to learn how to manage projects associated with culture, cultural tourism and cultural routes well. This will be done with the help of experience-sharing and experience-gaining study visit to the famous Viking Route in Sweden and participation in tourism fairs and exchange visits between regions of Balts’ Road.
Project will use innovative solutions: 3D movies, virtual reality tours, educational programs for children and pupils in Balts’ Centre in Siauliai city, environmental objects in Sēlpils, improved area of Mežotne Hillfort – reconstructed pedestrian footpath, sightseeing platform etc. and reconstructed Klaipeda district tourism center: repaired premises using symbols of ancient balts, installed interactive map of Klaipeda district that shows most attractive places to visit to encourage tourists to explore “Balts’ Road” objects and sites. Project activities are planned to raise awareness about ancient Balts and to continue further development of “Balts’ Road”.
