TOWN FOR SALE

There are 248 historical monuments in Batumi

More than 100 have been destroyed

The process is still in progress

About 300 construction companies,
the city government and the citizens
themselves are involved in this process.

The corruption schemes and flexible
regulations makes it easier to ruin
historical buildings and
issue permission on new constructions.

While all parts are interested in gaining financial outcome,
the city is losing its historical heritage.

On March 2018 Batumi City Council   approved the boundaries of Batumi historical zones

The document was prepared by GIS and RS Consulting Center Geographic and determines the boundaries of the historical part of the city and the relevant zones. The City Hall has changed the boundaries established by the research before submitting the document for approval and though it exists, the city government is still making decisions in favor of investors.

About 65 permission on constructions were issued in a historical part of Batumi only during the last year. New constructions are being built on a place of an old ones. More than hundred historical and cultural monuments have already lost status, the process is still in progress.
