On January 21-22, more than 40 stakeholders of Via Hanseatica met in Russia


Together we discussed the project activities and learned about the best practices from Russian entrepreneurs. In addition, the participants were able to make valuable contacts for potential future cooperations and found out more about Gatchina and its tourist attractions.

The most important upcoming development activities of Via Hanseatica Plus project are: renewing the travel planner, marketing activities (including campaigns, fairs, social media and advertising) and of course cooperation with travel agencies. For stakeholders, there are different study tours and trainings planned in Estonia and Russia.


The Project Via Hanseatica Plus is funded by the Estonia-Russia Cross Border Cooperation Programme.

Estonia-Russia Cross Border Cooperation Programme 2014-2020 aims to foster cross-border cooperation across the borders between the Republic of Estonia and the Russian Federation to promote socio-economic development in the regions on both sides of the common borders.
