The project created a pilgrimage route as a common touristic product. The person of St. Elizabeth is very important for the inhabitants of both towns – she was born in Sárospatak, while the Cathedral in Košice was named after her. The result of the project was a restored part of the pilgrims destination, St. Elizabeth Cathedral. Another important output was the new pilgrimage route which was marked with the rose emblem. A tourist guidebook was also created, and several joint events were organised, including a Pentecostal pilgrimage.
