This place is a must see in Tbilisi, its frescoes are among the most beautiful examples of byzantine orthodox art, the main altar is stunning for its beauty.

Paid a short visit to this church while a ceremony was taking place, so it was a good experience. Close to the river and right in the heart of the old town.

The church is beautiful and the history is amazing. Go for that alone. And as well, not necessarily about this church, it was amazing to me to see so many churches of different faiths all close together and all getting along.

Not a large church but very busy with local use on several days we were here, it was nice to see a busy church. The exterior is quite impressive even in the small street of the old city. Good interior paintings.

Sioni Cathedral Church. A nice place. Place of prayer. One of the oldest church in Georgia. From this location you can see the whole old city of Tbilisi.

Easy to find as it's in the centre of the old town. In my opinion the most beautiful church in Tbilisi, full of beautiful artwork and full of atmosphere. Shouldn't be missed.

One of the loveliest churches in Tbilisi. Although Tbilisi is full of churches, Sioni has a special character, all painted inside & a place where you feel religious

This is a place to visit while walking through the old town in Tbilisi. It's near the KDG/Cafe Klara and the Caucasian Carpet shop.
