Greenways definition

neman_logo

Greenways are multifunctional trails, developed in both urban and rural areas, for non-motorized users typically leading along linear green corridors, historic trade routes, rivers and railways. They are managed by local people in order to encourage sustainable development and healthy lifestyle. Greenways provide a framework for community-based initiatives and projects related to nature conservation, cultural heritage preservation, sustainable tourism and mobility. Greenways seek to address needs of locals and visitors and to provide a positive contribution to the local economy.(Sopron Declaration, Environmental Partnership for Sustainable Development,1st July 2006).

Trail presentation

neman_map

The Neman River Trail is a trail developed as a greenway, which extends over 10 km, starting in the historic village of Dokudovo, dating back to 1392 and located in Lidsky region in Grodno province. The trail runs to the Neman River and loops back Dokudovo. The outstanding natural and landscape values, watery meadows and forests of the Neman River have special significance for Belarusians, who celebrate them in their art and poetry.

The Neman River Trail provides access to many interesting natural and historical sites in the Lida Region. The trail is used not only by visitors, but serves also education and research purposes. There is potential for extending the trail along the Neman River so as to provide access to additional sites, recognized for their natural, historical or cultural values.
