The Tartu County Tourism Foundation represents the city and county of Tartu in the Livonian Culinary Route project as one of the leaders in creating the Via Hanseatica culinary route. In addition, an application for the Via Hanseatica+ project, aimed at extending the existing tourism route in the direction of Western Estonia and Pskov, was submitted to the EST-RUS programme and we are currently waiting for the decision. In addition to major collaborative projects, funding from the Leader programme has been received for Tartu County’s cross-promotion and -signposting project, the aim of which is to increase the cooperation between local tourist attractions.
In the past, the Tartu County Tourism Foundation has carried out a large number of diverse projects, in the course of which public tourism services have been developed, tourist attractions have been created and restored, various marketing activities have been implemented, and much more. The most notable among the recently finished projects, in which the Tartu County Tourism Foundation participated as a collaborative partner, are Living on the Edge and Riverways as the umbrella projects of South Estonia’s Leader group.
The most important among the campaigns are various marketing campaigns in adjacent markets as well as the annual summer campaign of the city of Tartu.
