  18. 18. • Project 5. Conceptualization of a network of rural tourism by embracing innovative forms but European territorial context - geotourism. • The project will introduce the geotourism concept and also best practices through the workshops and together with the network of local stakeholders, which will be formed, in complementary domains (accommodation, food, agriculture, handicraft products, transport related activities)
  19. 19. • Project 6: Evaluation of local agricultural products and inclusion in the wine trails network from 2014 to 2015, based on the creation of an infrastructure of rural protected areas. • Traditional agriculture is part of the landscape heritage and traditions of the Republic, including the southern area and Cahul. The quality of these products can help promote ecological tourism in the area through specific routes (networks of wine) that can develop in conjunction with developing this type of agriculture. • Landscape and nature remain as basic elements, tissue that articulates these activities, therefore being necessary to evaluate the structures of rural landscape and to protect the natural and anthropic rural zones.
  20. 20. TOOLKIT ECO-HOUSE, ETHNO-VILLAGE- EXAMPLE FROM SERBIA Cahul region can choose to either capitalize the existing facilities such as La Vadut and La Izvor, or develop the potential points such as Mihaies or Burlacu Village Museum, or support the development of new initiatives throughout the area. A combination of these strategies is also possible. The scale can vary from eco-house initiatives / ethno- house at assemblies or even entire villages (such as ethno-villages in Bulgaria, and Melnik, Kovacevitsa or Koprivishtitsa). What is important is that these facilities must be linked and integrated into the local tourism streams either as part of tourism packages or, for independent travelers, by appropriate territorial marketing such as brochures and tourist maps on the territory.

  21. 21. Examples of marketing the eco-houses and ethno-villages in Serbia: “The Serbian village is also the most trusted guardian of tradition. Folk crafts have been preserved through local handicraft, folk embroidery and crafts like loom and wood carving almost forgotten. Besides old folk traditions, authentic folk music and polyphonic songs were also preserved.
