The general objective of the project is to boost the competitiveness of the county and the region as well by the development of a themed route that connects Bihar’s tourist attractions representing the rich historic and cultural heritage of the region. In addition, these sights have modern infrastructure and provide high-quality services.

The Bessenyei György Memorial Building of Bakonszeg was the place where the implementation of the project began with total renovation roofing framework, rethatching, external and internal painting, improving the power grid. Furthermore, sanitary facilities have been constructed in a separate building. The fence has been restored as well. Moreover, a sheltered resting-place has been established suitable for hosting various cultural programmes and classes.

The Memorial Park has been built next to the Rhédey Palace in Zsáka. It includes a 40 X 100 metres Hussar Reenactor horse paddock with a fully covered viewing area for 200 people and the Hussar craft workshop equipped with two kilns. Moreover, as part of the renovation of the front garden of the Rhédey Palace a car park and a bicycle storage have been constructed in order to increase access to the facility.

In the Museum of Bihar in Berettyóújfalu, the façade and the interiors open for visitors have been renovated. Furthermore, through installation of an elevator the Museum has become accessible for people with reduced mobility. The project included the modernisation of the firefighting and security systems for better protection of the cultural goods housed in the facility and the visitors. A multifunctional information desk has been set up on the ground floor which serves as reception desk, cloak-room and box office. As part of the project several rooms of the permanent exhibition have been modernised to 21st century expectations and touristic attractions have been carried out on premises of the Museum.
