The commitee for tourism in the Pilsen region and a federation of the towns recieved a grant in 2000 for the project called:"The Jewish route in the Pilsen region" The reason for this project was the developing interest of the Jewish, non-Jewish and foreign people in the Jewish culture and tourism. The offer of such places haven´t existed yet (except Prague) although there are many places with rich Jewish cultural history.
This project should renew these historical sights and traditions and also should make the Pilsen region more atractive for tourist and create interest in the renovation and preservation of the Jewish monuments and their culture. And finally it should also bring the educational results of understanding and accepting the Jewish culture as a part of our history and
our presence too.
We decided to use three different forms of presentation for this project. Begining with the basic ones such as leaflets and posters and the more developed ones such as videotapes and CDROMs and internet.The leaflet constists of four touristic routes around the Jewish sights of the south and the north of the Pilsen region with its services and other possibilities. The poster is for motivation. Through the video tape you can meet the famous and old traditions of the Jewish live in the region and you can also learn about the nowadays life of the Jewish family.
CD-ROM shows us the presence and the history of the Jewish monuments, traditions and habits and also offers the details about travelling around the Jewish sights and renews the structures between the Czech and the Jewish culture
