GREEN HERITAGE: Manors with its parks in Russia, Latvia and Estonia presented in new green heritage tourist route

New green heritage tourist route has been compiled in a common tourist route map. The route is unique in the way that the Manor Houses with adjoining parks in St.Petersburg and Pskov (Russia), Rapina (Estonia), Gulbene and Riga (Latvia) are gathered in one map. Project „Green Heritage” partners from Latvia, Estonia and Russia for the first time jointly presented the route map in „Balttour 2014” (Latvia) and „Tourest 2014” (Estonia), but in March it will be presented to visitors of the biggest tourism Exchange „ITB Berlin” (Germany) and travel and tourism fair „MITT Moscow” (Russia).

The Green heritage concept is new in tourism terminology and visitors of „Balttour 2014” welcomed the idea of the route and design of the route map. Information on new sites, which are included in the map, was appreciated by visitors of the exhibition-fair „Tourest 2014”.

Green Heritage route leads through the larger and smaller cities from St.Petersburg to Riga, attracting not only to learn about the estates and parks, but also about castles, churches and other architectural treasures. Families with children are invited to participate in various interactive museum programs and creative workshops, as well to enjoy the delicacies of local producers. Romance pretenders will have the opportunity to go for long walks along the wonderful manor parks and enjoy a relaxed time of castles and manor apartments, but history fans – to listen to the amazing story of the local population.

The route maps will be available in Latvian, Russian, Estonian and English in Vidzeme (Latvia), Räpina (Estonia) and Leningrad region (Russia) tourism information centres, as well as downloadable
