The sorrounds were amazingly beautiful! The streets are crowded with cafes and taverns and merchants. Try the Churchkhela and the Khachapuri, traditional sweets and cheese pie. Excellent!

These structures have withstood wars, earthquakes, revolutions and time. The origins of this city are worth an afternoon stroll
