Ignalina - spa resort & hotels
The future of Ignalina District is related to tourism development. Every year, new tourism and sports objects appear in the district. Useful projects are also implemented in order to improve the living conditions of the local residents and to make the region more attractive and interesting. The town has two beaches and outdoor basketball and football courts. Preparatory work in regards to rehabilitation services is taking place. A few infrastructure development works will be performed in the Lithuanian Winter Sports Centre. Golf courses will be built in the district in the future.
Ignalina is the first district to have designed the special plan of tourism recreation “Special Plan of Tourism and Recreation Infrastructure of the Ažušilė Landscape Reserve and the Adjacent Territories for the Development of Educational and Recreational Tourism in the Area.” The municipality takes part in the international project “Exciting Cycling Net in the Baltic Country of Lakes,” and is one of founders of the Euroregion “The Land of Lakes.” While implementing the aforementioned project, long and short bicycle paths, respectively 20 km and 8 km in length, have been designed in Ignalina. The paths meander along the roads and forest paths of one of the most picturesque areas of the district—the Ažušilė Landscape Reserve. Cyclists will enjoy the most spectacular panoramic views of nature: hills and mounds, pine forests, blue lakes, green meadows with scattered ancient homesteads and lovely villages. Resting-places, calm spots for respite and observations areas, are arranged near the bicycle paths.
