The project Veselí nad Moravou – Strážnice – Skalica – an cross-border tourist incubator, which was part of the CREDO programme, focussed on the pilot support to infrastructure that would, in a wayattractive for tourists, interconnect all the three cities in a new tourist programme.
The landing place in Veselí nad Moravou was built, the ship called DANAJ with sufficient capacity for 60 people (she can currently transport 105 people) was constructed, and supplementary service networks (bike hire-offices in Strážnice and in Skalica) were created. The project also included an advertising campaign, a new reservation system, and training for human resources.

In contrast to previous projects focussed on the exchange of experience between experts, this was an investment project with visible outcomes which were followed by the development of private business.
This was a key project for the development of tourism on the Baťa Canal as it set an example of how capacities could be built, and it focussed on the quality of services.
