Excursion in Bolnisi
Our driver-guide will meet you in the hotel.
Departure to the Kvemo Kartli region. Bolnisi is a city of four names: Choruk Kemerli, Katharinenfeld, Luxembourg, Bolnisi. The change of city names will tell a lot about its difficult fate and the Bavarian architecture will provide an opportunity to imagine how the German settlers lived in the Georgian lands.
You will visit the oldest church in the country in the form of a basilica - Bolnisi Sioni, built at the end of the 5th century AD, in the era of King Vakhtang Gorgasali. Consider the inscriptions on the facade of the basilica - the oldest evidence of Georgian literature.
visit to the monastery of the XIII century Tsugrugasheni. There are magnificent frescoes, so the temple is considered a unique monument of medieval architecture.
visit the Church of St. Peter and Paul (XXc), that is located high on the mountain, offering magnificent views of the valley, and where you can feel yourself closer to the sky ...
then we will go to the family cellar, which was built in the time of the Germans-Schwaben. The cellar is located at a depth of 5.5 meters under the ground, where the temperature throughout the year is + 12C, which contributes to the proper production and storage of wine. You will taste 3 types of homemade wine (2 white, 1 red) and chacha 45/50%. Your tasting will smoothly turn into a real Georgian family lunch or dinner with traditional dishes and shashlik on coals from the vine!
