Gori Castle, Gori

(70+ reviews on the web)
Ruin Tourist Spot
Gori Castle once served as a strategic fortification overlooking the eponymous city. Perched on a rocky hill, the fortress probably dates to the 13th century. The present-day structure was built between 1630 and 1774, featuring rounded bastions made of baked bricks and herringbone patterns in the stonework of the walls. Enjoy a view of the city through pointed stone arches, and see snowcapped Caucasus in the distance.

  • The Gori fortress is perched in top of a big hill overlooking the city. To visit it, you need to go up a narrow uphill path that will lead you to the entrance. Inside it is not spectacular but it has ...  more »
  • Something about the statues make you feel like you are on sacred grounds where everything you have read or heard of knights weighs heavily. The statues are impressive! Worth the detour  more »

  • Excellent walls and view from the top. Well worth the walk up there and there is no entry fee. There were two security guards sitting snugly in a humpy on top but we saw nobody else. Must have been an important job! Whatever you do don't make the mistake we did and think you can walk down through the ruins on the NW end and get out the end, even though there is a well beaten track. Bad move - we had to clamber all the way back up to the top after reaching an impenetrable wall at the bottom!! Grr. Nice walls and views all the same.
  • Beautiful view from the top of the hill. The castle itself is just the wall and rests of the towers, no buildings. But view is worth climbing!!!
  • Free. Easy walk. Nothing in the castle. Worth to visit to overlook to city.
  • Good, a nice hotspot, not really hard to reach, windy and green... You can see ossetia from there!
  • Nice castle, only the top is a bit bare.
