Accommodation and travel costs: 

The City RUSTAVI is very close to the capital – Tbilisi, there are “Marshutkas” every minute going to Tbilisi taking you there in 30-40 minutes. The city itself is quite old – first gets mentioned in 5-4 centuries B.C. but as many settlements in Caucasus, it got destroyed in 13th Century. When Soviets took over, they rebuilt the city again but in their style – economic and not so ergonomic matchbox-shaped buildings all around. They built this city so that it could accommodate workers who were working at Rustavi Metallurgic Factory. After USSR fell, the factory, like almost all the industries in Georgia, stopped, so the city quickly went to poverty. We will be accommodated in ISCR – International Scout Center Rustavi, which is on the margin of the town surrounded by a nice yard and easily connected to the capital. The lodging is more dormitory style, we will have a conference room to work together and other spaces to socialise.
