The invitation for the county representatives to participate and the presentation of  Neamț County during the event is closely related to the uniqueness and beauty of these places strongly connected to every corner of Europe, because there are important cultural and historical routes, traveled by ancient pilgrims since time immemorial, which, nowadays, by the efforts of the Neamț County Council, are revitalized as a tourist resource that has an important social and cultural significance. One such example is the millennial road “Camino de Santiago” of St. James, which connects Santiago de Compostela with Neamț County and is traveled by pilgrims from all over Europe. From this point, the road of some important international collaborations for the development process of the Neamț County tourism and the attraction of the foreign tourists in our county is now opened.

During the event, the vice-president of Neamț County Council, Dragoș Chitic, saluted everyone on behalf of President Ionel Arsene and presented Neamț County from the perspectives of natural beauty, culture, spirituality, gastronomy and hospitality of its people, recalling the history of the county, an impressive and long one, dating since the times of the Paleolithic period, on the current territory of Neamț being discovered the vestiges of the most brilliant prehistoric civilization of Europe, the Cucuteni-Trypillia Culture, which is over six millennia old.

In addition to all the natural beauties and objectives that tourists discover in Neamț and relating to the theme addressed during the Partenalia Conference, the event brought to the attention of the participants two objectives in the county, of UNESCO universal cultural heritage.

 

The first one is the Neamț Monastery, the largest and oldest monastic settlement in the historical region of Moldavia, with roots dating back to the twelfth century.

 

 

The second UNESCO site was proposed by Romania, a year ago, for the indicative list of cultural monuments, was the “Cultural-monastic landscape Vânători-Neamț”, motivated by the fact that our monasteries contribute to strengthening the relationship between the past and future, of the relationship with the cultural heritage, but also with the spiritual one. Only the Vânători-Neamț area includes six large monasteries and ten hermitages depending on these monasteries. In all these monastic settlements live around 1,000 nuns and monks. There are a total of 40 service altars here (monasteries and churches of myrrh), a unique aspect in Romania. In fact, in Neamț there are the most monasteries in the country and 537 historical monuments: very old buildings, places of worship, many museums and memorial houses, which display valuable collections, some dating since 1210.
