The touristic program foresees an introduction to the local agriculture such as apiculture (bee-keeping), fishing, familiarization/involvement in farmers’ activities. This will promote as creation of new products/ services and their realization so the improvement of already existing products and services according to the international standards.

This settlement was deserted after the Soviet period. The houses are on the brink of collapse and the infrastructure is ruined. In 2017 a new ski lift was installed in the place of the old one. It is planned to build new hotels and implement infrastructure projects. In this regard, we consider it actual to set up a residence at the place where local and foreign urbanists, architects, traffic researchers, designers and artists will be invited periodically to share their experiences.
