Mtskheta, Gori, Uplistsikhe

Being founded more than 3000 years ago , Mtskheta is surprisingly beautiful and elegant. It is the spiritual center of Georgia. Here we will see the cathedral of Svetitskhoveli and the Jvari monastery on the top of mountain near the city , with its excellent views.
Then we continue our way towards the town of Gori, birthplace of Stalin. Visit the Museum of the dictator, where we will see the old house where he was born and lived in his early childhood, as well as the museum and the train car in which he was driving, for example, at the Yalta Conference.
Near Gori, about 20 kilometers, we will find an amazing place - the cave city Uplistsikhe, founded more than 3000 years ago and which is composed of many natural and man-made caves. About 900 years ago Queen Tamar loved to visit the town.
