South-Estonia has rich natural and cultural heritage and important initiator for local development is seen through sustainable tourism. Still, the number of visitors is not enough and need to be increased at least 10%. The participants agreed that main problems getting tourists here are lack of resources for development the objects and bad transport connection with South-Estonia – no good air connection, no good train connection between Latvian capital Riga and Tartu (so called South Estonian capital). Participants also introduced their new initiatives and project in the filed of cultural and natural tourism.
