The “Gyumri Project Hope” Foundation has taken the initiative to propose and develop a handbook of how to preserve historical buildings and how these buildings can be used today. The document is created based on best international practices and similar projects and initiatives. The main goal of the handbook is to use Gyumri as a pilot city and a model for heritage preservation in Armenia and neighboring countries.
