Out and About (Mtsketa, Georgia)

Mtsketa, the ancient capital of Georgia, is the most beautiful in the morning when the crowds of visitors haven’t arrived yet. You’ll see the majestic Svetiskhoveli (The Life Giving Pillar) Cathedral – the place of coronation and burial of the Georgian Kings and nobles. (The tomb of Vakhatng Gorgasali, the founder of Tbilisi is there.)

Up on the mountain there is Jvari Monastery – the 6th century, can you imagine?

In Mtsheta, the ancient capital of Georgia, there are narrow streets to explore,

Ripe grapes to admire,

Gardens coloured with leaves and fruits,

Calm waters of the river

Don't miss it.
