Tervete Nature Park has been named the European Destination of Excellence in Latvia in 2009 within the framework of the project "European Destinations of Excellence 2009" (EDEN) that was carried out by the Latvian Tourism Development Agency (LTDA), Economy Ministry and the European Commission.

The aim of the EDEN initiative is to draw attention to the value, diversity and shared characteristics of European tourist destinations, and to promote destinations where the economic growth objective is pursued in such a way as to ensure the social, cultural and environmental sustainability of tourism, as LTDA spokeswoman Marita Neimane informed LETA.

 

Tervete Nature Park was awarded the European Destination of Excellence title thanks to its economic, ecological and social sustainability principles.

 

The official EDEN award ceremony will take place in Brussels this fall.

 

Last year, Rezekne District was named the European Destination of Excellence in Latvia, whereas in 2007 the title went to Kuldiga.
