linia 2012-04-11 THE CHASSIDIC ROUTE. DUKLA

We are happy to inform you that Dukla has joined the Chassidic Route as the 26th township participating in the project.

The Chassidic Route is a tourist route following traces of Jewish communities through southeastern Poland, and soon also western Ukraine. The project has already been joined by 25 communities, in which priceless reminders of a centuries-old Jewish presence have survived. These are: Baligrod, Bilgoraj, Chelm, Cieszanow, Debica, Dynow, Jaroslaw, Kolbuszowa, Krasnik, Lesko, Lezajsk (Lizhensk), Lublin, Lancut, Leczna, Przemysl, Radomysl Wielki, Ropczyce, Rymanow, Sanok, Tarnobrzeg, Ulanow, Ustrzyki Dolne, Wielkie Oczy, Wlodawa and Zamosc.

The Chassidic Route runs through many picturesque areas, like the Roztocze Hills or the Bieszczady Mountains, and joins localities where one can find imposing synagogues and Jewish cemeteries with gravestones dating back to the 18th, 17th or even the 16th century. Many of them are still visited by Chassidim from all over the world.

Within the framework of the Route, the Foundation supports local authorities and non-governmental organizations in protecting and promoting their townships’ multicultural heritage. Our aim is also to stimulate the development of dedicated tourism based on Jewish heritage through the establishment of permanent inter-sector partnerships.

The Chassidic Route gives many places in Poland the opportunity to appear on the map of tourist attractions. Apart from well-known Zamosc, included on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, there are many places along the Route that are often omitted by tourists, unaware of their significance and charm.

We invite you to visit the Chassidic Route website.
