Chiatura was founded in 1921 under USSR rule and turned to a production town. The heart of a town is a Manganese production mine which brings up to 60% of the world amount of the element.
However the most unique thing of the town is that the only public transport during that time were two dozens of cable cars. The town was designed for the uneven relief of Georgian gorges.
Today Chiatura is going through hard times. Miners are leaving their quarters, and the town is dying out itself. Half of the cable cars has stopped operating.
Therefore a problem floated up - how to safe the unique and rare town from dying.
