  • This is smaller monastery than Gelati so take taxi from Kutaisi and check both places in 1 trip. The frescoes are repainted, it doesn't have that nice historical feeling like Gelati Monastery but it i...  more »
  • Of Gelati and Motsameta we preferred Gelati, but Motsameta is definitely worth a visit (we had a hire car so drove to both). It's located in a stunning spot perched above the river and you have to wal...  more »
  • One of the nicest places in Kutaisi. The monastery is surrounded by greenery, with the observation deck offers a view that simply captures the spirit! If you're in Kutaisi-must visit!

  • Less impressive than Gelati but set in a more aesthetically pleasing natural location, this monastery is quite charming. I don't like the newly-repainted (as opposed to restored) frescoes though...they look amateurish and, to my mind at least, fail to respect the beauty of the old medieval paintings. A pity!
  • It's a little bit hard to get there. Just take a taxi to get there. It diffidently worth it.
  • After you park, you walk toward the monastery on a nice trail. The scenery around is astonishing - definitely worth a visit! The inside of the monastery looks brand new, but beautiful nonetheless.
  • Worth to see! Small but charming place
  • Beautiful place.
