If you are the kind of traveler who likes to revel in the beauty of rocks and mountains, in the powers that nature supplies, all the while having the convenience to rest in comfort at the end of the day, then it’s time to take the road to Tsalka.
The multi-ethnic locals, those “watchmen” of archaic churches, shrines, and castles, are waiting wholeheartedly for intrepid travelers; if you are still hesitant, take our word for it – Tsalka will steal your heart!
Temur Mgeladze, a local, recently received funding through a grant competition supported by the EU’s ENPARD program, for the opening of his well-equipped, three-floor hotel, Home +, in Tsalka’s charming Dashbashi Canyon.
“Modern and well-equipped hotels are scarce in the municipality, so we decided to fill the gap in the market. Receiving financial support has turned our dream a reality,” Temur tells us.
Travelers are fond of unique places, which Tsalka undoubtedly is. Yet the region is not commonly included in tourist routes. That the place abounds with opportunities, and the perpetual presence of sublime nature, is evident for anyone who has visited.
With the EU financial support, Tsalka Local Action Group (LAG) and CENN work together in Tsalka Municipality to encourage local employment and tourism.
A total of 214 persons participated in the first grant competition within the EMBRACE Tsalka project. 13 won among them, including both, economic and social initiatives.
Temur’s elegant Home+ was among the winners.
Temur goes on: “Every family has suffered the consequences of the pandemic in one way or another. Many failed to carry out their planned activities. For my family too, it would be impossible to open Home+ without the grant, which motivated us to pursue our passion. It is good that today there are organizations that give stimulus, hope, and opportunities to people.”
