Persons with disabilities to explore Georgia’s sites through VR technology
National Agency for Cultural Heritage Preservation of Georgia launches new tours using virtual reality (VR) technology and audio guides in museums and protected areas of the country.

Travellers and locals visiting Georgia's protected areas will soon be able to completely explore the museums and natural reserves using virtual reality presentation stands arranged at the place.

The new project also includes arranging adapted virtual presentation stands for persons with disabilities.

The first completed VR stand has already been arranged at the
Uplistsikhe cave city complex in eastern Georgia, near the central Georgian city of Gori. The first visitors of the VR stand were beneficiaries of Gori-based Centre for Welfare and Development.

These systems are being set-up with inclusive tourism in mind - they will benefit those who do not have the ability to actually visit sites like rock monuments due to physical impairment", said Nikoloz Antidze, General Director of the agency.

According to National Agency for Cultural Heritage Preservation of Georgia, arranging virtual reality stands is also planned at all protected areas that will contribute to popularization of Georgia's cultural heritage.
