Georgia’s capital and largest city is Tbilisi (Tiflis), an important industrial, social and cultural center for the country and a spectacular example of different nations and cultures, religions and ethnic groups mixing together. Tbilisi is one of the few places in the world where you can find synagogues, churches and mosques side by side. The city takes its name from nearby warm sulfur springs; translated from Georgian "Tbilisi" literally means "warm". The history of the city can be learnt by its architecture, such as the tremendous architecture of the historical old town with its narrow streets and numerous churches, the National Park of Tbilisi, the Turkish sulfur sauna, and the thousands of intact sculptures and monuments which neighbor modern buildings as a Cathedral of Holy Trinity and the World’s Bridge.

Gergeti Trinity Church - The Gergeti Trinity Church was built in the 14th century, and is the only cross-cupola church in Khevi province. The separate belltower dates from the same period as the church itself. Its isolated location on top of a steep mountain surrounded by the vastness of nature has made it a symbol for Georgia. The 18th century Georgian author Vakhushti Batonishvili wrote that in times of danger, precious relics fromMtskheta, including Saint Nino's Cross were brought here for safekeeping. During the Soviet era, all religious services were prohibited, but the church remained a popular tourist destination. The church is now an active establishment of the Georgian Orthodox and Apostolic Church
The church is a popular waypoint for trekkers in the area, and can be reached by a steep 3 hour climb up the mountain, or around 30 minutes by jeep up a rough mountain trail.... click the text to read more info and pictures.
