Georgia’s Ancient Rock-hewn Town Opens VR Booth Offering Virtual Tour

Georgia’s ancient rock-hewn town Uplistsikhe welcomed new VR booth which offers virtual reality tour.

The system enables wheelchair users and other visitors to enjoy hardly accessible sights. Project was initiated by Georgian startup VRex together with National Agency for Cultural Heritage Preservation of Georgia.
Using virtual reality glasses you can toggle between summer and winter modes. Over 100 touristic locations of Georgia, which are used in this project were shot by 360-degree cutting-edge technology cameras.
Director of VRex – Nikoloz Gogochuri says that under the conditions of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Cultural Heritage Protection Agency, the project will continue and will allow the visitors to browse the various, hard-accessible monuments.
