WWW.VISITLAGODEKHI.COM – A new EU-supported webpage to promote touristic potential of Lagodekhi was created by Local Action Group
“Discover the genuine nature of the Caucasus, where fruitful gardens, ancient forests and sky-reaching mountains meet.” This is a description of Lagodekhi, which you will see at the recently launched dedicated webpage – www.visitlagodekhi.com,promoting Lagodekhi municipality. The webpage was created with the support of EU through ENPARD programme by the Lagodekhi Local Action Group (LAG) youth members and European volunteers.
The idea to create an information web-page about Lagodekhi was initiated by active young members of Lagodekhi LAG, as they saw that the municipality has become more diverse and deserved to have its own brand. Up to day, not many people knew how much Lagodekhi could offer to its visitors. It was necessary to give people more information on what to expect when visiting Lagodekhi, which is not only the town, but nearby villages that have a lot to offer: Fish tour in Heretiskari, brewery in Apeni or vineyard tour in Leliani, etc.
Launching this web-page was the best way for youth to share the pride of their municipality and spread the information. For this, LAG members quickly started to mobilize resources and reached for the European volunteers in Lagodekhi from Germany, Czech Republic, Spain. During five meetings, youth distributed responsibilities and started to work on the web-page. After one-month of work, the web-page is ready, and gives the first impression on the diverse potential of Lagodekhi municipality
Today, the visitors of the web-page can search for different types of information on the history of Lagodekhi municipality, its culture, various tours and touristic routes. With the help of the web-site, the guests can plan their entire visit, starting from transportation and accommodation, ending with museum visits and festivals. The web-page illustrates the variety of services that Lagodekhi has for everyone, including those, willing to discover new hiking routes or interested in agro-tourism. It’s notable that the web-page indicates the approximate prices for each service, which facilitates the planning process for the visitors.
The authors of “Visit Lagodekhi” plan to develop the web-page further and update it with new information on interesting events and developments in the municipality. Meanwhile, youth wing of LAG continues its active work on new projects to promote the brand of Lagodekhi.
