Idea of the Contest

The Baltic Sea Region does not only have a long common history, but also particular natural and cultural treasures. However, inhabitants are not aware of the common characteristics of the region. The Six Baltic Sea Wonders contest was launched to overcome this issue. The contest intends to promote the region’s cultural and natural heritage by identifying the most popular features of the whole Baltic Sea Region. The aim is to strengthen a common identity, which will help making the region more visible as a tourist destination and to develop innovative tourism products.
