Bodbe Convent Tourist Infrastructure Arrangement Works Under Completion
Tourist infrastructure arrangement works ongoing next to Bodbe St. Nino Covent in Sighnaghi Municipality are at the final stage. The Municipal Development Fund of the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure of Georgia is the implementing agency for the named EIB funded project.
There were the following works carried out under the project: arrangement of the two-level parking lot next to the Convent, installation of internal and external water supply, wastewater, drainage, and heating-ventilation systems, improvement of indoor and outdoor lighting, vertical layout and territory improvement works. Besides, the MDF is also implementing St. Nino Spring access road rehabilitation works.
Number of tourists and pilgrims visiting the St. Nino Convent has considerably increased, which in turn results in increasing traffic volume. The Convent adjoining infrastructure was failing to meet the growing demand causing congestions. Following project completion, the convent visitors will avail themselves of improved and orderly tourist infrastructure.
