  • Shio-mgvime monastery is interesting above all dear to him: classical serpentine road with excellent views. If you arrived in Tbilisi for a few days, just so you can see real mountains. Standard taxi drivers take 10-15 gel for the road to the monastery of Mtskheta. If agree directly from Tbilisi, the trip will cost 45 lari (30 to Mtskheta and back with the expectation there plus 15 lari per Monastery). If you're not too Orthodox, then surprising the monastery will not find. It's not the Svetitskhoveli and not Jvari, a "Novice". Tomb of the Shio, Assyrian (Byzantine) 4th century monk who came with the educational mission in Georgia, available: However, in Soviet times, it was looted, burned and relics remained one bone, now in the monastery and stored. Latest church with strained on the walls-photo wallpaper pleased icons, some more buildings from the 19th century. Here is more important than the place itself: mon6astyr' is located in a mountain hollow, the road rests in her as at a standstill. However, again, kind of on the road deserve attention: this mountain Georgia. (Say, in rains the road washes out, but in February we got relaxed.)

  • Is the church stands quietly in the premises of the same Tablo Church. And the Church of the venerable St. Nino in combination by now time-tested prayer toy shop but had to pray.

  • A very nice place. Pleasant besides a small stream of tourists, apparently so the monastery is very neat and tidy. You can get there by bus (including winter) from the Centre of Mtskheta (bargain, I rode for 10 gel) or by train to the Dzegvi and walk 4 km. In the summer when availability of time would recommend walk-12 km (about 2:00) prijatnejshej road
