DUSHETI, Georgia – The Georgian government and the World Bank will allocate USD 5.6 million (12 million GEL) to fund a major renovation of the city center of Dusheti, a historic mountainous town of 4,600 located 54 kilometers northeast of the
capital Tbilisi.

New fountains, walking paths, green areas and a recreation zone will be constructed, and the town’s numerous medieval and 19th-century architectural monuments will also be restored.

Georgian news site agenda.ge reported that Dusheti’s municipality approved the project earlier this week and planned to begin the rehabilitation process later this year.
The site said the municipality had chosen local architect Giorgi Macharashvili’s firm to carry out the project.
