The rescuers install additional route signs for the hiking tourists not to get lost in the heaps of snow. During heavy snowfall they help the tourists to orient themselves. A shooting team of one of central television channels of Ukraine visited the Observatory.
The cooperation with professionals is a valuable experience, a key to success in the project management sphere.
We congratulate you on the Holidays, wish you prosperity, new successful joint projects and an inexhaustible source of creative ideas!We wish a lot of happiness and health to you and your families! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
In summer this year, the Technical Secretariat of the Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Poland – Belarus – Ukraine 2014-2020 planned to conduct an integration meeting of all cross-border project coordinators called “How much we have progressed for so many years!” within the Observatory at 2028 m height. Unfortunately, the quarantine restrictions interfered in these plans. But, as soon as there occurs such a possibility, this meeting will be held. It was announced at annual Programme summary event “PBU on the air”.
