During this tour program, you can enjoy the beauty of Georgian Winter Forest, Sabaduri and visit the religious capital of Georgia, Mtskheta.
The faith heritage of Georgia is strong and with a long history. Early Christian sites, ruined monasteries are just some of the treasures available for visitors to enjoy. A pilgrimage through this part of our country reveals Georgia’s wide outlook on faith.
Moving from Tbilisi toward the religious heart of Georgia, Mtskheta you’ll find extraordinary relics and tales as we go. This place has so many things to inspire you to keep on traveling.
Mtskheta has a fascinating religious heritage with much of it still possible to enjoy.
Mtskheta is a heartland of gorgeous religious buildings, as well as spiritual revolutions. There are also old places here to stir the stillest of souls – monasteries inhabited by monks, and let’s not forget our stunning Svetitskhoveli Cathedral in a small Mtskheta city. Let’s go there together. Life is peaceful here.
Jvari Monastery (6th C.). Jvari monastery is of the most eminent monuments of Georgian architecture as if it was the first example of domed roof architecture. Today, the Jvari monastery is under UNESCO protection. From the summit of the mountain where the monastery stands you can enjoy the stunning confluence of Kura and Aragvi River.
Svetitskhoveli , the patriarchal cathedral of Mtskheta occupies a central place among these monuments. The cathedral differs not only in its artistic value, magnificence, and harmony but in the special role it has played in the history of Georgia. The period of the cathedral construction commencement (the beginning of the 11th C.) coincided with the most difficult and exciting epoch in the history of Georgia.
Sabaduri Forest . In winter, the forest turns into a magical place. A thick carpet of snow-white covers all around. Branches of tall trees barely withstand a load of snow, because from time to time the gushes of icy wind that have swooped up and down the branch and a pile of snow falls down like a small snowfall. Snow-covered spruces look like smart, magnificently dressed-up ladies gathering for a ball. The sun’s rays make their way through the plexus of branches, drawing fancy patterns from the shadows on the ground. The snow in the sun glitters and shimmers, it seems that someone has scattered diamonds. Probably, it is she – Winter-enchantress.
