Timisoara, European Capital of Culture in 2021, will be promoted through a route gastro-cultural in Banat
Attracting a large number of tourists in 2021, when Timisoara becomes European Cultural Capital, will be made by promoting gastric-cultural routes based on Banat multiculturality, on the most representative traditions and objectives for every community.
The first step will be identifying places preserving specific aspects and the rapid printing of a brochure including gastric cultural routes in Banat.
“Timisoara’s most valuable brand is multiculturality. Printing the brochure is a project I have been considering for some time. We want the brochure to refer to all ethnic groups living in Banat, promoting tourism in point of gastronomy. But, we would like to promote objective works from every ethnic group, churches, monuments, Jewish cemeteries, synagogues, what every ethnic groups has to show on certain tourist routes. We would also like to promote events concerning the ethnic groups’ lives, trying to attract visitors to events and have accommodation and food where traditional kitchens are,” the executive director of the Association for Tourism Development and Promotion Timis (ADPT) within Timis County Council, Delia Barbu said.
Thirty ethnic groups live in Timis county.
From the well known Banat meat balls rolled in cabbage and beef meat soup from Giuvaz to the German soup with wine or Serbian goulash all these will be found in the brochure of ADPT Timis.
