The International press tour for journalists was organized to promote Lutsk and Volyn tourism. The program included visiting of Lutsk, sanatorium "Prolisok" (village Grem’yache) Olyka village and eco-restaurant 'Yavir". 

Tourists often are interested not only in historical architectural monuments or other extraordinary places, but also in recreation or rehabilitation. Such beautiful place in Volyn region is sanatorium "Prolisok" in village Grem'yache, Kivertsi district.

The foreign delegation moved there after the observation of Lutsk. The guests were pleasantly surprised by what they have seen. Sharing by experiences it was noted that "Prolisok" is an establishment of European standards with a strong medical base.

The arsenal of sanatorium includes the vast territory, two pools (conventional thermal and mineral water), medical building, hall with special facility for the diagnosis of diseases of the musculoskeletal system. By the way, there are only some gyms of such types in Ukraine. Besides the food is very delicious there.

Next place in program was Olyka village. The participants visited the objects of historical heritage sites: the castle bastion type - Radzyvyliv family residence, Collegiate Church of the Holy Trinity and the oldest church of Saints Peter and Paul in Volyn. Valentina Harkovlyuk - the local ethnographer helped foreign guests to get closer with history of the Radzyvyliv residence. Yuriy Pohnerybka – the priest showed a collegiate church of the Holy Trinity. By the way, there is a reconstruction of church now and a Polish cemetery in Olyka with Cossack’s burial.
