We passed by this Church several times and each time it was full of worshipers. Must be a very important religious spot indeed in addition having quite interesting architectural style too..

Sioni church is located right at the heart of the Tbilisi old town very close to the Tbilisi History Museum. It is a church dating to a few centuries back and is considered among the oldest in Tbilisi. Going inside requires having modest dress.
