The Chassidic Route is a tourist route following traces of Jewish communities through southeastern Poland. Goals of the project include stimulation of the socio-economic development of the region by promoting the multicultural heritage-oriented tourism.

Currently the following localities participate in the route: Baligrod, Bilgoraj, Chelm, Cieszanow, Debica, Dukla, Dynow, Jaroslaw, Kolbuszowa, Krasnik, Lesko, Lezajsk, Lublin, Lancut, Leczna, Nowy Zmigrod, Przemysl, Radomysl Wielki, Ropczyce, Rymanow, Rzeszow, Sanok, Tarnobrzeg, Ulanow, Ustrzyki Dolne, Wielkie Oczy, Wlodawa and Zamosc.

The most important point of the Chassidic Route is the "Synagogue" Center in Zamosc which houses, among others, the Chassidic Route information center. The project of "Revitalization of the Renaissance Synagogue in Zamosc for the Needs of the Chassidic Route and the Local Community" is supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism. Construction and conservation works in Zamosc had commenced in July 2009 and were completed in the summer of 2010. The opening ceremony took place on April 5th, 2011. Within the framework of the "Revitalization of the Renaissance synagogue in Zamosc for the needs of the Chassidic Route and the local community” project an activity “Restoration of the synagogue complex in Krasnik - phase I (protective works from further decay)" was also implemented. The works in Krasnik (a town 90 km away from Zamosc) were completed in April 2010.
