The ambition of the new management of the municipality , in the personality of the Major Mr. Kuzman Marinkov , is to create conditions and offer possibilities for the development of the tourism , for the creation of pleasant and attractive relaxation zones, recreation and entertainment areas on the territory of the municipality. All these will be well promoted through the participation in European programs, through the resources from which we can built up a good tourist infrastructure.
