poor restauration works you will see patches of concrete and numerous mistakes on islamic design patterns (it is an art, you should never find 90 degrees angles) ok for neophytes and adepts of Disney lands

Completely rebuilt with shops and a hotel. There is an entry fee but you can see quite a bit for free including walking along the walls and in the towers.

Enormous amounts of money have been invested to renovate this fortress/castle/museum. Even though you might consider it a bit Disney-esque, Rabati really is a beautiful and significant cultural and historic site. Be sure to have a guide take you around so you can appreciate everything...More

Visited here as part of a small group tour, the castle itself stands very proud and so it should. It has been massively restored, but therefore can also function as a stage for local events. Inside there are many items to interest, such as the...More

This huge fortress has an endless history. Its beautifully restored and takes about 2 hours if you want to see all the sections and details. Need to buy a ticket for 6 GEL. With recent renovations in modern style the ancient value is somewhat compromised.

Even though the castle was extensively restored about eight years ago, it is still very impressive and worth visiting. The size of it is much larger than other castles and it is being very well cared for. It's worth taking a tour of the castle...More
