One more Tatarstan project on creation of tourist and recreational cluster in the Kamskoe Ustye was included into the top 10.
The Mirrors of Tatarstan project became the winner of the national vote of the Russian competition for the creation of tourist and recreational clusters and ecotourism development. The Vysokogorsky tourist cluster project, which involves the creation of an eco-cluster near the Blue lakes, received 18,476 likes.
The cluster includes three specially protected natural areas: the Blue lakes nature reserve with three crystal-clear reservoirs, the Semiozersky forest and the Kazanka River. The project concept provides for wildlife 30 minutes far from the metropolis.
The top 10 according to the results of the popular vote entered the Dingez-Sea of Tatarstan project (Kamskoe Ustye) which received 8,810 likes. This project is planned to be implemented in the Kamskoe Ustye. The eco – resort combines two specially protected natural areas: Yuryevskaya cave – the only speleotourism site on the middle Volga and mount Lobach-an observation platform at an altitude of 136 m. The concept of the project sounds like “the sea is closer than you think”.
