The number of local, foreign tourists and pilgrims in the monastery complex of Sioni church is constantly increasing, and the existing infrastructure near the monastery could no longer meet the increased demand. After the completion of the project, the tourist infrastructure has been completely reconstructed, which will create favorable conditions for the development of tourism in the region,” says the Municipal Development Fund.
