The European Commission has approved to phase over to the 21-27 programming period the extension of the Nausicaa sea centre , in Boulogne-sur-mer.
This extension, co-financed with €17 million from the European Regional Development Fund, will allow the construction of more than 10.000m³ of basins and almost 25.000m² of buildings, amongst which the new Exposure loop “Aventure dans le Grand Nord”, bringing the total surface of Nausicaa to almost 60.000m² compared to 35.000m² prior extension.
In terms of visitors, the extended Nausicaa aims to receive up to 1 million visitors which is a significant increase compared to the 610.000 visitors the centre is receiving already today.
