Implementation & funding

The European Parliament has called on EU member states to support a proposal to promote the 6,800 km route of the former Iron Curtain as a "tourist trail that would preserve the memory of the division of the continent, show how it has been overcome through peaceful European reunification, and promote a European identity."

From 2010 on, there are explicit funding opportunities in the EU budget for projects related to the Iron Curtain Trail. More information on funding can be found in this section of the website.
