Central Baltic projektet Baltacar

Project BALTACAR is an Estonian-Finnish-Swedish cooperation project that aims to harness the tourist potential of the underwater cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea by creating new opportunities for visiting unique underwater sites at their original location. During the project, a tourist attraction including wrecks in Estonian, Finnish and Swedish waters will be established in the Baltic Sea.

Additionally, joint efforts will be made to market and promote underwater heritage tourism in order to raise awareness of the unique underwater heritage of the Baltic Sea, its excellent preservation conditions and the potential of underwater heritage for developing local tourism.

To support marketing and outreach activities, an interactive website will be set up that provides up-to-date information on the newly created tourist attraction and on the possibilities of visiting it.
