Investments in the longest ecopath
By the end of the month, bulgarian and greek tour operators will be introduced to the longest ecological path through the Rodopi mountain. The length of the path is 180 kilometres. It begins in the Hvoina village (Bulgaria) and ends at the outskirts of the Rodopi mountain, near Paranesti village (Greece).
The entire path can be crossed for fourteen days by well equipped tourists. A total of 83 places to rest are there to aid the journeymen – 27 alcoves, dozens of shelters, fountains and benches. Several platforms with scenic views are built along the way. The Regional tourist association of Rodopi intends to separate the path into sections. The project for the path was worth 285 000 euro, 240 000 of which are for infrastructural activities, and the rest – for the so-called “soft measures”.
