Driving Tour To Mtskheta(old capital)-Gori-Uplistsikhe

What will help us to find out more about country and its history? of course old cities such as an ancient Uplistikhe cave town and Mtskheta (a former capital of Georgia). Here you will see oldest orthodox church in Georgia (which is almost unchanged) - Jvari and also Svetitskhoveli, which had been main cathedral for centuries, where the kings got their crowns. In Gori, you will visit Stalin's museum and hear all the long ways that made him the Leader of Soviet Union. Here you will see the place where he was born, his personal things and private train. So I think this is must see tour in Georgia, especially if you are stopped in Tbilisi, meanwhile all this places are near. Have safe and interesting trip! with Love <3

      Orthodox Christian cathedral located in the historic town of Mtskheta, Georgia, to the northwest of the Georgian capital Tbilisi. A masterpiece of the Early and High Middle Ages, Svetitskhoveli is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It is currently the second largest church building in Georgia, after the Holy Trinity Cathedral.

      Known as the burial site of the claimed Christ's mantle, Svetitskhoveli has long been one of the principal Georgian Orthodox churches and is among the most venerated places of worship in the region.[1] Throughout the centuries, the cathedral served as the burial place for kings. The present cross-in-square structure was completed between 1010 and 1029 by the medieval Georgian architect Arsukisdze, although the site itself dates back to the early fourth century. The exterior archature of the cathedral is a well-preserved example of typical decorations of the 11th century.
