One day tour in Mtskheta and Gori

The tour is interesting because of   importance of  both towns. Mtskheta - the significant one for Georgia and the region, was the first capital and  the  religious centre of the country. And  the town of Gori  is the native (birth) place of  the  world  famous politician  Joseph Stalin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In  Mtskheta you will see the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral and   the Jvari Monastery which stands at  the top of  a  high hill.

After  that,  we will visit the Stalin House Museum in Gori and  at  the  end of the day we will visit  Uplistsikhe – one of the oldest rock-hewn town  in Georgia and  in the Caucasus region.
