1. Stanislav Calling. 

Grant amount: UAH 34,500

Stanislav is the world’s first interactive digital guide that will guide you through Ivano-Frankivsk. Stanislav already received a grant in January 2021, which allowed it to create content for the Telegram bot, set up a service team and found an NGO.

Stanislav Calling is a project aimed at turning a tourist experience in Ivano-Frankivsk into a fun adventure, as well as making visitors fall in love with the city and encouraging them to come back again. One of the ways to “wow” city guests is to meet them physically at the station with a package of personalised offers. Such meetings will be held by professional entertainers every Saturday for 2 months.

They will build different scenarios for welcoming guests to Ivano-Frankivsk Land. Dressed in various costumes and using props, they will invite guests to various establishments for breakfast or drinks. They will act as friends who are happy to welcome you to the cool city! 

The goal of the project is to put Ivano-Frankivsk on the tourist map of Ukraine; to boost the city’s economy by increasing the number of transactions. You can find Stanislav-bot here: @Stanislavv_bot.
