Gori Castle, Gori

3.7
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 idea is good, sit in a circle of war, without hands, without legs, without heads, some just cut ... monument to those who fought in the war.

    Fine view of Gori and the surrounding hills. It's nothing spectacular tbh but if in Gori it's only a 10 minute stroll so may as well do it.  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.

    Nice castle, only the top is a bit bare.
