You are just holding a promotion material with the title “Cross-country skiing, cycling and
hiking – let's meet with the neighbours”, which is a result of a project with the same name,
carried out with the help of European Union funds. Among the partners who participated in
this project are the villages Nová Lhota and Vrbovce and two citizens associations – Slovácký
běžecký klub Kyjov, o. s. and Aktivní Horňácko, o. s. The main goal of this project was to
improve attractiveness of the tourist region of White Carpathians in the area of Javořina,
Nová Lhota and Vrbovce (SK) and build a cross-country skiing centre in this border region.
Thanks to the project a new parking place for visitors, information centre and necessary
background (public toilet) were built and machines for grooming cross-country trails were
purchased. The project laid the basis for the rise of a new tourist location sought after by
lovers of skiing trails, having a lot to offer not only to cross-country skiers in winter, but also
to hikers and cyclists in summer.
