Silistra Announced a European Destination of Excellence
Twenty five tourist destinations from across Europe were awarded the title 2010 European Destination of Excellence in Aquatic Tourism at a Gala Awards ceremony in Brussels on September 28th. EDEN is the acronym for 'European Destinations of Excellence', a project promoting sustainable tourism development models across the European Union. The project is based on national competitions that take place every year and result in the selection of a tourist destination of excellence for each participating country.
The Bulgarian town of Silistra was announced one of the twenty five European Destinations of Excellence for 2010.
Silistra is located in the north eastern part of Bulgaria, on the south bank of the lower Danube River. It is considered the oldest city in Bulgaria. Dotted with fountains, springs, traditions and legends about water, the best way to see and appreciate this beautiful aquatic destination is by taking a boat excursion along the Danube and Suha rivers. The unique natural beauty of the region combined with centuries-old traditions make Silistra a unique holiday destination.
