Result 2: Rural facilities and households along the route provide higher quality services, they are known and well presented to potential tourists; Set of training’s and Advisory Support Programme activities directly on the field, gave new knowledge to the tour operators and services, in order those to provide much higher quality services. Presenting the facilities on the project website offers the possibility to be more visual to the tourists.

A certain number of participants already started to stand out with their ability to be spokespersons (key persons) in their profession and in what they do. They are doing it jointly for the CB area. Activity already increases the opportunities to positively influence the future development of regional tourism products in Shar Mountain (Polog and Prizren regions).

 

Result 3: Capacities of existing and potential tour guides upgraded and represent key persons for future regional tourism products' development. Training for tour guides and tourist animators was conducted, and wide distribution of the developed "Manual for Tour Guides and Tourist Animators" was intended for all relevant beneficiaries.

 

Result 4: The number of visitors was increased, attracting new tourist visits, the economy of the region has enhanced business and regional values; Designed, launched, up-to-dated modern website for rural tourism promotion “Discover Šar Mountains’ area”; Designed and implemented a promotional campaign that promotes the website, routes, cultural and natural heritage and service providers related to each of the roads; Prepared, launched and promoted mobile application for the 21 Trails.
