  • Not easy to get to, ancient monastery nestled in steep mountains and spectacular scenery. True Hermitage. Ancient churches. It can be reached from Mtskheta with a bad road between mountains covered with forests intact.

  • For the first time, traveled to Georgia family. The shio-mgvime monastery drove student friend (tbilisec) forums have not seen reviews about it. A picturesque mountain road. The monastery near Mtskheta. During our visit, there were only a few pairs of tourists. Beautiful nature, spectacular views. The monastery itself, well, where lived the Holy Monastery shio, backyard produce very strong impression. As a guide happened to be a local monk. Started with a few questions. and then he himself became interested in and hour and a half telling the history of the monastery of St. Shio life legends and many other interesting events related to Georgian history. Extremely interesting. As if he were in another time. Have not experienced such peace and tranquility. One of the most vivid impressions after the trip to Georgia.

  • We are very fortunate that our friend invited to visit Tbilisi where not carry sightseeing group) the road to the Temple of John the Baptist, really, was classic: steep and slippery. Soaring Eagle in the sky, silence, tranquility and peacefulness. An ideal place for contemplation and prayer! Were somewhat surprised when met at the temple group of tourists from Africa. But, as they say, the ways of the Lord are mysterious)))
