Recently Georgia initiated reconstruction of several historic architectural monuments of cultural heritage of the national and local importance. This fact motivated the author of the article to investigate a bigger picture and explore the trends and assessments of reconstruction of historic properties, especially those recognized as the World Heritage Sites under protection of UNESCO. Researchers who carried out the studies of the issue note that assessments and judgements produced by the World Heritage Centre are not always consistent, often become subject to political lobbying and not occasionally follow unclear guidelines. The author argues that Georgia sometimes also comes face-to-face with the described challenges.
