Manglisi Cathedaral ( Manglisi Sioni Cathedral) firstly was built in 4th C. These days presented church was built in 11th c. The church was erected on an important trade route which connected eastern countries with the Byzantium. In thirties of the 4th century, a church already stood here, and in the first half of the 11th century it was replaced by the present church – a tetra conch in plan. The wall paintings preserved in the church are of the 11th century.

Paravani Lake is the biggest lake in Georgia . Paravani has altitude 2073 m. The area of the lake is just over 37 square kilometers and a maximum depth – up to 4 m.
The lake is surrounded by incredibly beautiful alpine meadows – the real pride of this region. The lake looks mysterious and still keeps its secrets. At the bottom of the reservoir divers found an extraordinary structure with a total area of 900 m², which is very interested for archaeologists. After a long teamwork, scientists agreed that at the bottom of the lake was found the tumulus belonged to the Bronze Age. At the same time were discovered and brought to the surface a multitude of kitchen and household items, dishes, vessels of various shapes and sizes, and much more dated back to the 4th C.
Later on during the excavations the scientists found the corridor which led to the very center of the mound. With the help of excavations there were found a large number of various household items, among which are ceramic painted ware. For many centuries, carried out under water, the dishes practically did not deteriorate, which indicates its skillful manufacture.
Still the scientist have many questions : as a settlement was under water? Most likely, as a result of a disaster. Paravani just flooded and the city with them.
And now tired and happy lets get back home!
