A cross-border project to improve and popularize tourist opportunities in north-east Bulgaria / south-east Romania is starting, reported local authorities at General Toshevo. The project is worth EUR 1.5 M and is joint between General Toshevo in Bulgaria and Negru Voda in Romania. Both towns are in comparatively remote areas of the neighboring countries in the historic Dobrudzha region. The project aims at developing a joint tourist potential for the two municipalities in improving infrastructure, preserving nature and taking advantage of opportunities for sustainable alternative tourism. This will include road reconstruction, building of tourist information centers and improving access to protected nature areas and historic sites.
