Culture minister views restoration works in Gelati

Minister of Culture Nika Vacheishvili has visited the Gelati Monastery complex in Kutaisi and taken part in discussions about its restoration.
Georgian Heritage will fully restore the medieval monastery, having presented the most attractive tender, at a cost of half a million GEL. A German company is also involved. Experts are presently conducting archaeological and geological works at the monastery, although the initial work was being undertaken even during the Russian invasion in August.
