New challenge for CMM

Is it possible to compare South Baltic Sea region to Toscana or Catalonia in regards the attractiveness for the Europeans and world tourists? The partners of a new EU project claim that variety of undiscovered advantages cover the Baltic area. They have just started the new project - Seaside (Developing Excellent Cultural Destinations) within the scope of The South Baltic Cross-border Co-operation Programme which is co-financed by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Four maritime museums: Naval Museum in Karlskrona, Maritime Museum in Rostock, Lithuanian Sea Museum in Klajpeda, The Polish Maritime Museum in Gdańsk have been working jointly on a new temporary exhibition "Four countries, four stories, four viewpoints". It will present some relevant issues concerning Baltic region history - development of the fleet, tall ships within 19th and 20th centuries, Cold War and how it affected the international relations after the Second World War in this part of Europe. The Polish Maritime Museum will devote its part of display to underwater archaeology achievements being one of the most essential forms of museum activity.

Furthermore, Seaside partners intend to be involved in spectacular annual events e.g. Baltic Sail – maritime festival of shipping taking place in Klajpeda, Karlskrona, Rostock, Gdańsk, Helsingor i Lubeck. They are planning to prepare a strong promotion campaign that will enable to build a new brand in Europe attracting citizens of the Baltic area and other world’s regions.

Specialists of tourist sector and marketers engaged in the Seaside project are working out a variety of tourist products based on amazing virtues; wide, sandy beaches, strange unusual flora covering dunes, historical monuments hidden among port cities. Preserved maritime heritage consisting of shipbuilding and sailing vessels, fishery, trade contacts, navigation is said to be a leverage of region development. The main goal of the project was set to increase the visitors number not only of from cross border travelling but also coming from South Europe countries.
