On this e-guide, Mr. Jovan Ristić, director of the Tourist Organization of Kotor, said: “It enables exploring the cultural and natural heritage of the region, in particular cross-border aquatic biodiversity. For easy reading and navigation through the content, the guide is structured in sections – each dedicated to one thematic route: Dubrovnik and Aquarium (Croatia), Kotor and Aquarium Boka (Montenegro), Mostar Aqua Path, and Nature Park Hutovo Blato Aqua Path (Bosnia and Herzegovina).”

Each section of the EXChAngE Blue Pass e-guide has four chapters, presenting natural heritage, cultural heritage, one thematic route and transportation to the site. Chapters are structured into thematic topics, keeping as similar as possible outline across the guide.

Currently, Blue Pass EXChAngE e-guide is available only in English, for Android mobile devices, on Google Play.

On this ticket, Dr. Aleksandar Joksimović, director of the Institute of Marine Biology of the University of Montenegro, said: “It is much more than a discount voucher for four thematic routes in three neighboring countries. It promotes cross-border mobility of tourists end exploring cross-border nature and cultural diversity. Each tourist with the Blue Pass ticket will become a member of the growing community for supporting sustainable use of the cross-border aquatic biodiversity”.

Each Blue Pass ticket has a unique code which entitles the holder to purchase one discounted entry ticket for four thematic routes in the cross-border area.
