Beautiful church, I spent a long tie inside of it, in the silence and respect, it was warmly candlelit but locals and foreigners kissing or touching the icons. A heartwarming collection of icons so beautiful to admire. Strongly recommended!

On Saturday evening we looked into this very old church just as a service was getting started. About 50 old women (no men!) were on line to by votive candles for the service. Probably they weren't nearly as old as they looked, but we were fascinated that so many women and no men were in attendance. Be sure to examine... More

Beautiful place for praying (for Christians) and it's a historic sight too. And while visiting, you can check out the center of Tbilisi too.

Most of the churches we visited in Georgia are very strict with dress codes so that means that guys should wear trousers and ladies should wear something to cover their head and long skirts. Normally they would provide these at the entrance but save some time and bring your own scarf. The places we traveled to are also generally chilly... More

The church is really fascinating and it is located the centre of Tbilisi. There are more local people than tourists. Behind the church there is a small park quite nice.

St. George's Church is the third cathedral in Tbilisi. Built in the 1800's, it has many icons and architectural features of the Russian Empire period of Georgian history. We celebrated the Saturday evening Vigil, vespers and Matins. Visit the well supplied store right next to the church.

The name "kashveti" is derived from Georgian words kva for a "stone" and shva "to give birth." Legend has it the prominent 6th century monk David of Gareja of the Thirteen Assyrian Fathers was accused by a woman of making her a pregnant in Tbilisi. David prophesied his denial would be proved when she gave birth to a stone. She... More
