Despite the fact that the Lithuanian-Russian border areas are enriched with a cultural heritage that reflects the historical period of East Prussia.

The resurrection and actualization of existing cultural values is essential to present values to future generations and to society and to promote acquaintance with the common history on both sides of the border. During the project, a common route will be created along the historic roads of Queen Louise of East Prussia, covering the area between East and West. A History Incubator will be created in Vilkyškiai town, which will allow a more innovative look at historical facts, get acquainted with them, and which will be adapted to any type of people.

According to 2019-2021. The project is expected not only to increase tourist flows in Pagegiai and Sovetsk regions, but also to Klaipeda, Taurage, Kaliningrad regions and thus strengthen cross-border cooperation.
