North of Tbilisi lies Mtskheta, one of the oldest towns of Georgia. For nearly a millennium, the large fortified city was the economical and political centre of the Kingdom of Iberia. It is considered the birthplace and one of the most vibrant centres of Christianity in Georgia. We visited Mtskheta on a Sunday and all the churches we visited were full of people.
We are now driving to the South of Georgia, hopefully finding some other sites than churches there. ;-). Find out on our next post.
