Planning of walking and motoring geotrails around the geosites, in combination with other attractions of biotic, archaeological and cultural interest, as well as creation of interpretative, awareness printed material relevant to the geosites is one of the objectives of the project “Designation of geosites – geoparks, contribution to sustainable development”. It is a project of the Institute of Geology and Mineral Exploration (IGME), funded from the 3rd community support framework program. Furthermore, this printed material which is also available in digital form aided by the project’s data base and the geographic information system is used to develop an application for display at the IGME museum, exploiting the potential of multimedia and interactive technologies (e.g. touch screens), in a way that will attract the interest of the visitor on the geological history and at the time entertain him. Making of the right interpretive products will result in the designation of the geological heritage and the establishment of new forms of alternative tourism, a modern tourist trend which will help in the social and economic development of each region. Designation of geosites will also have a positive impact on the awareness and knowledge of geological history at all levels of education, in our country as well as internationally
