The еmergency measures begin with the fortification of its main walls from the west. The conservation intervention consists of modelled building on the other walls, restoration of the pillars of the hypocaust system to their actual height and restoration of the vaulted roof of the northern room and the actual floor. As a basis, there will be used the preserved remains and the observations during the archaeological excavations.

It is envisaged the installation of a fence between the cultural monument and the street as well as building of a robust shielding structure guaranteeing protection of the original. The terrain around “Shishman’s Bath” will be improved. There are also envisaged measures to highlight the uniqueness of the cultural treasure. Upon completion of the project the waste management will be performed in a way as to protect the environment.
