The growth of tourist visits requires responsible management, development and maintenance of cultural sites and awareness increasing efforts. In this respect, the overall objective is: To improve valorisation and interpretation of valuable cultural heritage in the target region. It is aimed at developing sustainable tourism, through actions for a better interpretation of cultural heritage, conducting cultural initiatives to promote tourism appeal and increase the tourist flow. At the same time, it would appear incentive for the region to develop and offer new tourist services.

The project contribution to achieving programme result indicators-Annual tourist overnight stays at accommodation establishments, is expressed in conducting an active campaign to promote tourism in the region, and key sites. Dissemination of information will be supported by creating additional conditions for serving tourists in the visitor center and 3D models and reproductions of sites and virtual room, which is expected to extend the visit time of the site Perperikon and the region. The planned increase in the number of overnights spent (from 89459 /2015/ to 99 131 /2019/) can be achieved both by a greater number of tourists and by extension of time for visit. Direct and immediate results are expressed in attracting more tourists to the region at the festival, seminar and opening of the visitor center, but also in the planning and implementation of measures and actions for the strategic development of the region.
