Tourism product of the joint Military Heritage of Latvia and Estonia

Estonian-Latvian cross-border cooperation program project "Military Heritage" aims to attract attention of general interest tourists to military heritage tourism which is at present in the status of niche tourism in Latvia and Estonia. The cross-border scope of the project will improve the professional level of the whole network of tourism objects in Estonia and Latvia, creating a homogenous product with common identity serving to attract more domestic and incoming tourists.

It is planned to combine 150 - 170 different military heritage objects (museums, collections, expositions, buildings, structures, etc.) in Latvia and Estonia, make object improvements, develop a unified visual identity of the Military Heritage tourism product and mark the objects involved in the project with informative signs, produce printed materials - Military heritage product guide and tourism brochure. Military heritage tourism product information will also be available on the website.The project also serves educational purposes as it will improve society’s awareness and understanding of processes and events in the recent common history of Latvia and Estonia within the last 100 years. Joint marketing and promotion of the whole route territory brings more publicity and interest than efforts trying to attract attention to individual locations. The product will also facilitate cross-border tourism between Latvia and Estonia.

This project is co-financed by the Estonian-Latvian cross-border cooperation program of the objective "European Territorial Cooperation" of the European Structural and Investment Funds.
