The day trip to Tschiatura gave us an intensive insight into "country and people". Unfortunately the cable cars were out of order, which our nice tour guide Maria had told us before. It is astonishing that such a wrecked city still works. Unfortunately, the sweet bread was not eaten. But we could visit the theatre in Tschiature, where the rehearsals were interrupted especially for us. Also the nunnery with the cave church and the monastery Katskhi Sveti on the steep rock needle were impressive. One should not miss this authentic tour. Many thanks again to Maria and her driver.

Description

Let yourself be fascinated by another Georgia and explore the hidden part of the country that hardly any tourist gets to see

Chiatura is an incredible and bizarre city in Georgia and a visit here is an experience you should have made, because the once prosperous mining town, which is now almost forgotten, has a lot to offer. In the 1950s, for example, 30 cable cars were opened to connect the various districts and mines and to make the city centre accessible. This is located in the middle of the gorge None of these cableways have ever been renovated since they were first used 60 years ago, yet some are still in operation, largely thanks to the motivation of the inhabitants. If you are not afraid of heights, you can ride one of these historic cable cars during the tour and enjoy a wonderful view of the city

Another highlight in Tschiatura is literally hidden, because the rock monastery was built into a cliff and is difficult to find. Only a small sign between two inconspicuous houses points to the stairs leading to the monastery On this tour you will also be able to admire this.

Another stop on this extraordinary tour is the Katshis Sveti: a church built by a monk on a small, single rock pillar. How is that possible? Your personal guide will explain this and much more to you and provide you with further interesting insider knowledge

When the sun slowly sets, you will start with your guide on a wonderful road towards the city of Zestaponi, which is located on a mountain From there you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view that you will remember for the rest of your life

Experience another side of Georgia on this tour and get an unforgettable impression of the history and uniqueness of the country
