  • You can get to the monastery from Mtskheta - there is a pointer to the monastery on the central square of the city. The road is one. The Shio-Mgvime Monastery is a medieval monastic architectural comp...  more »
  • 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.)
