Dragon Boats on the Danube
20-seat Dragon Boats, which are already an attraction in Plovdiv, will be the new tourist product for the Bulgarian-Romanian section of the Danube, announced at a press conference Philip Nedyalkov, chairman of the Consul Group Management Board. The ROBG-399 Dragon Boat Project is co-funded by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund under the Interreg V-A Romania-Bulgaria Program.

Leading organization for the Dragon Boats project is the Agency for Regional Development and Business Center - Vidin, Bulgaria, and partners are: Local Employers' Association for Small and Medium Enterprises (LEASME) Calafat, Romania and Consul Group Association.
One of the most interesting events envisaged under the Project is the triathlon, which will be held next year with the boats in the waters of Rabisha Lake, VeloCross to Belogradchik and a cross from the city center to the fortress "Kaleto".
Festivals with Dragon Boats will be held in five Bulgarian and five Romanian cities: Vidin, Lom, Oryahovo, Svishtov and Rousse; Drobeta Turnu Severin, Calafat, Turnu Magurele, Giurgiu and Calarasi. Organizers promise timely information on enrollment of desirable rowers.
