The event was organized within the project Creating a joint tourist destination in the cross-border area of Lugasu de Jos and Komádi through cross-border protection of natural heritage values along the Crişul Repede Valley, a project financed by the Interreg Romania-Hungary Program, PA1 – Joint protection and efficient use of common values and resources, SO6 / c – Sustainable use of natural, historical and cultural heritage within the eligible area, project number ROHU 68.
The meeting was opened by Grim Andras, president of the Pro Valea Crişului Repede Association – Pro Sebes Koros Volgy. Grim welcomed the massive presence of the representatives of the tourists from the Crişul Repede Valley area. The president stressed the need to create common tourist routes linking the Crişul Repede region from Şuncuius to Komadi. It is necessary to draw up a joint statement outlining the common desiderata of the tourism actors in the Crişul Repede region.
The overall objective of the project is to create and promote a new cross-border thematic route along the Crişul Repede River. The project focuses on the Tileagd reservoir, built on the Crişul Repede River, and on the Hungarian side the project addresses Lake Varsánykeri in Komádi. Both lakes have a low conservation status, compromising the development of tourism in their region and requiring urgent interventions. The main results of the project are the improvement of the conservation status of both lakes by the greening of a land occupied by landfill sites located in the immediate vicinity of the Tileagd reservoir on the Romanian side and by the creation of an ornithological habitat on the shores of Lake Varsánykerti on the Hungarian side, as well as by supporting these sites with new Enterprise Infrastructures.
