Jvari monastery of the 6th century, located on the top of the mountain allows you to see the beauty of nature and appreciate the architecture of the ancient builders. Listed today on the UNESCO World Heritage List, this temple was built on the site of the cross, which was erected by St. Nino, the Enlightener of Georgia. Two rivers Mtkvari and Aragvi merge here. It was at this place that the famous Russian poet A.S. wrote his works. Pushkin and this very place is described in Lermontov Mtsyri. The distance between the cities is small, only 25 kilometers. On the way to Mtskheta you will meet a famous place called “Salobie”. There you can taste the legendary Georgian lobiani (it’s like khachapuri, only in the filling instead of cheese it is very tasty beans) or just bean in pots, which locals call “lobio kotanshi” (beans in pot).

Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, built in the XI century in honor of the 12 apostles of the Christian church. It is a symbol of the spirit of Georgian Orthodoxy, a place of baptism, burial of Georgian kings.This cathedral is of great value not only for the Georgian people, but also for all Christians in general. This is due to the fact that it contains a great relic, the tunic of Jesus Christ.

Samtavro Convent, this is a whole complex of buildings, which in its architecture has preserved many significant Christian events from the history of Georgia. King Mirian and Queen Nana, who first converted to Christianity as head of state, rest in the complex. Elder Gabriel, who served God and people in Georgia, is also buried in the monastery. It is widely believed that he could see the future and heal people with his prayers.

Shio Mgvime, a working monastery, located 10 km from Mtskheta. The monastery was founded at the beginning of the VI century by the Assyrian monk Shio (one of the 13 Assyrian fathers). Rev. Shio, along with such saints as Shushanik and Abo, made a great contribution to the development of the Christian aura in the country. He is the founder of monasticism in Georgia, one of the most revered saints of the Georgian Church. The area on which the complex is located will make you remember this place for a long time.
