Fascinating church

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.

We dropped in and encountered priests and a small group of women worshipping. It did not seem to be a formal service but was impressive nonetheless. The Orthodox priests are colourful in their robes and we also noted several young men in robes, presumably some form of alter boys? The interior, however, is not as impressive as some of the...
