The Cultural Sites of Sector 1, Under the Limelight! Three Million Lei for Tourism Promotion

The City Council of Sector 1 seeks to increase the number of tourists by 5 per cent and it intends to achieve this goal by means of three tourism promotion projects amounting to approximately 3 million Lei, to be financed from European funds.

Yesterday, the City Council of Sector 1 launched three tourism promotion projects amounting to a total of 3 million Lei, to be financed from European funds. The three projects aim to increase the visibility at local and national level of several cultural sites in Sector 1 that have a high tourism potential. At the same time, the three projects seek to improve the tourism offer by creating a new itinerary which would include the contemplated cultural sites.


Bucharest, a European Destination


Thus, the "Green Culture" project will help promote four cultural sites in Sector 1, declared historical monuments and part of the national cultural heritage. These four cultural sites are the "Admiral Vasile Urseanu" Astronomic Observatory, the “Vasile Parvan” Museum of Archeology, the “Sf. Sava” National College and the Victoria Passage.

The “Stone Men” project shall attempt to increase the visibility of seven monuments in Sector 1: the statues of Barbu Stefanescu Delavrances, of Monsenior Vladimir Ghika, the bust of Nicolae Iorga, the statue of Alexandru Lahovary, of Iuliu Maniu, of I.C. Bratianu and of General Charles de Gaulle.

The third project, entitled “Bucharest Wants You In Sneakers” seeks to promote other three cultural sites in Sector 1, namely the Herastrau Park, the Alley of the Caryatides and the “Dimitrie Gusti” National Village Museum.

"With these projects, we seek to increase the attractiveness of certain sites that are part of the cultural heritage in Sector 1, and to promote them in such a way so as to have Romania included in just a few years in the network of tourism destinations of excellence. Today, Bucharest cannot be considered a tourism destination. Whoever comes to Bucharest today, does so out of curiosity, just to see how things are around here. But Bucharest has so many beautiful things to show, it's just that they have not been revealed and placed in proper tourist circuits. So this is what we wish to achieve, " said Andrei Chiliman.


The State of Certain Monuments Is Not So Good


According to Razvan Munteanu, Manager, the fulfillment of these three projects is expected to generate a 5 per cent increase, namely by 5.000, of the number of tourists that visit sector 1. Additionally, by these projects, an attempt is made to draw attention upon some of these monuments which are in a rather poor state, such as the "Admiral Vasile Urseanu" Astronomic Observatory and the "Vasile Parvan" Museum of Archeology (the Macca House).

Each project provides that a dedicated web-site be created. Moreover, promotion material shall be produced and distributed, in the form of leaflets, fliers, pamphlets, albums, maps, post cards, posters and DVDs. A TV campaign shall be carried out at the same time and advertisement panels shall be set up on the great boulevards in the major cities of the country. Furthermore, two artistic events shall be organized in the Kiseleff and Herastrau Parks.

The Green Triangle, the Cultural Quadrant and The Heptagon of Monuments, Tourism Attractions in Sector 1

In the following six months, the City Council of Sector 1 will implement three European projects for tourism promotion, in the amount of approximately 3 million Lei. They include monuments more or less known in Bucharest, as well as cultural sites with high tourism potential.

The three European projects that the City Council wishes to implement in the following six months aim to revive cultural tourism at both local and regional level.

Thus, the project “Bucharest Wants You In Sneakers” (the Green Triangle) is meant to increase visibility of three cultural sites in Sector 1, declared historical monuments and belonging to the national cultural heritage, namely the Herastrau Park, the Alley of the Caryatides and the “Dimitrie Gusti” National Village Museum

“The name of the project is not necessarily a mistake. It sprung from an idea that came to me as I recalled the times when, as a child, I would play ball in front of my flat building. I would tell my friends: "Let me get my sneakers and I'll come out to play." The people at the Ministry (the Ministry of Regional and Tourism Development) thought it was interesting and proposed that we keep this form” explain Razvan Munteanu, Project Manager.

The Cultural Quadrant (“Green Culture”) promotes four cultural sites having a high tourism potential, by creating a new tourist itinerary that would include these sites: the "Admiral Vasile Urseanu" Astronomic Observatory, the "Vasile Parvan" Museum of Archeology, the "Sf. Sava" National College and the Victoria Passage.

With the Monument Heptagon (“Stone Men”), the local administration wishes to increase the number of people visiting seven cultural sites declared historical monuments: the statues of Barbu Stefanescu Delavrancea, Monsenior Vladimir Ghika, the bust of Nicolae Iorga, the statues of Alexandru Lahovary, Iuliu Maniu, I.C. Bratianu and General Charles de Gaulle.

“We sought to enhance the attractiveness of the tourist sites that are part of the cultural heritage, and promote such sites so that the respective projects will cause Romania to be included, in just a few years' time, among the travel destinations of excellence. Those who come now to Bucharest, do so out of curiosity, they want to see how things are around here. It is not a travel destination in itself. But with the project, important monuments will be highlighted and placed in a proper tourist circuit" explained Andrei Chiliman, Mayor of Sector 1.

As Razvan Munteanu, Project Manager pointed out, local authorities intend to increase the number of tourists who visit these tourism sites by 5 per cent, which means that in six months’ time, there should be 5.000 more tourists passing before these monuments.

The three tourism development projects initiated in Sector 1 are financed from European funds and amount to a total of approximately 3 million Lei. The authorities will use the money to create web-sites and to print and distribute promotion materials such as leaflets, fliers, pamphlets, albums, maps, post cards, posters and DVDs. In addition two artistic events will be organized in the Kiseleff and Herastrau Parks.

The project implementation term is 6 months.

“The strategy of urban regeneration, which means increasing life standards, also implies highlighting the cultural and historical heritage of Sector 1. It was in Sector 1 that the history of this city was written, and there are many buildings, museums and cultural sites awaiting to be promoted so that they may become known and appreciated by the tourists”, declared Andrei Chiliman, Mayor Sector 1 on the occasion of the project launching conference.

The three projects aim to increase the visibility of several cultural sites having a great tourism potential in Sector 1, and to improve the tourist offer by creating a new tourist itinerary that would include such sites. The cultural sites are declared historical monuments and are part of the national cultural heritage:
