Regional platform for the support of rural tourism








The rural household, besides agriculture, can have a number of other activities, and one of the most attractive ways to earn additional income is rural tourism. The project " Regional platform for the support of rural tourism " is focused on categorized rural households, as well as on those who are about to enter rural tourism businesss, and is designed to provide all necessary knowledge and practical advices on how to comply with the legal procedures in order to bring guests from all over the world to the village, to meet new people, to share all the benefits of living in a natural environment with them, and, finally, to earn on this.
