It´s hidden from the common traveler path, but it is a precious historical Gem that can not be avoided when visiting Georgia. Very close to Gori and right in the middle of the ancient region of Kartli... One of the most ancient settlements in Georgia and one exceptional sample of a settlement built within a cave complex. The new museum... More

Absolutely you have to see this place. Ancient stone city. I spent about 2 hours to walk over. I think that it is goog to be there in Oct or Nov. It may be difficult to walk here in the mid season high temperatures.

Just a short distance from Gori, this site is interesting for historic and scenic values and is worth the visit.

We arrived mid afternoon and there were a number of large coach parties already there, this would be unremarkable elsewhere in the world but is not the norm in Georgia where you usually have things pretty much to yourself. It is only 3 Lari for an adult to get in so great value. You have full access to the whole... More

This was a lovely place to visit, very interesting history, beautiful location and constructions & so clever how it was created. We didn't use a local guide but just wandered and only on the way out saw the museum. It is on the left just past the entrance and i would suggest you visit it first before venturing up the... More

Nice atraction. City in rocks (caves). Some caves in rocks which looks very good. Lot of reptiles walking there, it's also interesting. YOu can get ther grom Gori by local bus or taxi. If you go by bus then after get off from bus you have to walk a little (around 2 km).

This was one of the most pleasant surprises I had in all my 150 country visits. Since it is not in Tbilisi proper, but in Gori (about an hour or so away), I did not even know it existed. It is an absolutely amazing city literally cut into the mountain. The ride to get here is incredibly scenic. Do this... More

Well of the beaten track, but definitely worth a visit. Quite an amazing place - it was once a city of 7,000 people, living in caves carved out of the mountain. You can see the remnants of an old city - the large public buildings (including several churches and a theatre), as well as shops and residences. Reminded me of... More

Had never heard of this place until we practically chanced upon it on a visit to the area. It is totally amazing - one of the most stunning places I have visited. We used a tour guide - a local girl with a college degree who spoke excellent English, and had tremendous knowledge of the history of the city. I... More

Georgia has a lot of attractions. For the most of them you should bring your drink, food and you also should have a bush or tree in mind where to pee. Uplistsikhe is different. You could even get an USA National Park feeling. Parking place, a little museum, guides to hire, toilet even somehow clean, a little restaurant and even... More
