    Stop At: The Chronicle Of Georgia, Vanati Street Opposite the Military school, Tbilisi 0177 Georgia
    The Chronicle of Georgia, also called History Memorial of Georgia is one of the hidden gems of Tbilisi.

    Not at all a popular tourist spot, but definitely one of the impressive sites I have discovered lately. Located near the Tbilisi sea (it's a water reservoir actually) this place not only tells the history of Georgia but gives really spectacular views to surrounding vicinity. And impresses of its size.
    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Stalin Museum, 32 Stalin Avenue Stalin Park, Gori 1400 Georgia
    Opened in 1957 in his hometown, the Stalin museum in Gori has barely changed since retelling the life of the ruthless dictator through a heavily-censored Soviet lens.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Cableways Chiatura, Chiatura 5500 Georgia
    The city of Chiatura, Georgia has founded among otherwise uninvitingly steep valleys and deep gorges thanks to a healthy vein of manganese that was ripe for the mining. However the treacherous terrain was too difficult and inefficient for mine workers to traverse on foot, so the Soviet government installed a precarious network of dangling cable cars that are still in use today despite a troublesome lack of maintenance.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Chiatura, Georgia
    We walk around town, will see local market, abandoned houses, soviet architecture. And enjoy lunch in the soviet style restaurant.
    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Tskaltubo, Georgia
    The abandoned sanatoriums of Tskaltubo, a town in the west part of Georgia is one of the most interesting places to visit in Georgia. The place is distinguished by its natural springs emanating from limestone massifs deep beneath the ground. In Soviet Georgia, Tskaltubo was a famous spa resort. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the sanatorium lost its function. Vines, bushes, and weeds found their ways through the pillared hallways into the bathing rooms. Later in 1992, a bloody conflict broke out between government forces and separatists who fought for the independence of Abkhazia, a disputed autonomous republic in northwestern Georgia. After the fall of Sukhumi, the capital city of Abkhazia, thousands of Georgians were forced to flee the city. The IDPs found the deserted corridors of the Tskaltubo sanatorium as a shelter.
