About Development – Renovated Svaneti

Georgia About aims to show you the best of Georgian culture and the arts, food and wine, history, and the best of places to visit but the best of Georgia is not all in the past. Georgia is developing fast and bringing the best of the modern world and its technology to Georgia to enhance the lives of its people and their environment.

Georgia About will regularly post news about development projects that are improving life in Georgia.

We start with an exciting and innovative project in Svaneti. Svaneti (Georgian: სვანეთი) is a mountainous region situated in the northwestern part of the country.

Surrounded by 3,000–5,000 meter peaks, Svaneti is the highest inhabited area in the Caucasus.

The region is known for its architectural treasures and magnificent landscapes. It has dozens of Georgian Orthodox churches and various fortified towers built in the 9th-12th centuries.

In September 2011 a project to improve services and transport links was completed and the Svans, as the people of Svaneti are called, now benefit from a new Justice House, a police building, a hostel, a new bridge and a 136 kilometer road.

The new Justice House building was designed by the German architect – Jurgen Mayer.  The design has the form of a mountain and is sympathetic to the Svaneti environment.

    Is the wavy building by the police station part of the police station or is it a different view of the justice center?
