Project “Development of a network of cycling paths and related services in the natural surroundings of rivers Mura and Drava” acronym Cycle in a network is financed by the European Union through the IPA Cross border Co-operation Programme Hungary-Croatia.
The project will draw in about 56 settlements including the partners from the Hungarian and the Croatian side of the cross-border area, therefore it will have perceptible effect on a large area of the whole HU-HR border region. As the Mura-Drava region is a unique area of untouched nature, the project will emphasize the preservation of its biodiversity and ecosystem by taking careful actions. The project is unique as it forms a network of activities on the theme of cycling, yet aims to provide different forms and levels of adventure to different target groups. The vision of the project is that cycling will mean a frequent free time activity and means of transport for locals and visitors alike, who will be responsible for their environment and have wide knowledge of the natural values of the surroundings of river Mura and Drava by providing a complex network of cycling related infrastructure and services.
