Based on the ancient Silk Road and a number of ideas that have been focussing on it, an incredible project has been created exciding far beyond an ordinary journey: a New Silk Road 2017/2018 international expedition.

The combination of routes of the Silk Road with interesting cultures of the countries through which the ancient routes has run, has allowed a creation of a huge event on international scale for all audiences of all ages.

Silk Road, an ispiration of the expedition project

Ancient Silk Road is a shared cultural heritage. The New Silk Road 2017/2018 expedition is based on "the great economic project" which was the legendary system of caravan trade routes, used between III b.c. and half of the XVII century of our era. It combined China with Constantinople and Europe and on its entire length, over 7000 km, it promoted cultural, economic and political exchange, becoming a kind of prelude to the modern system of global economy, shaping development of civilization.

"Thanks to the old Silk Road – says the creator and organizer of the New Silk Road 2017 expedition – great civilizations traded technological achievements and knowledge, met and mixed cultural influences. I believe that cultural heritage can be a foundation to building a broad cooperation. In today's global context, the ancient route may become a symbol of a high political, commercial and cultural potential of the entire region."
