  • If possible, take a guide and be sure to visit this place! Emotion kolosal'nye! We visited the monastery with a large group. We landed from the bus at a decent distance to the monastery and did it knowingly, while going to the monastery-around beauty! You will not regret! In the monastery many memorable, historic places. Amazing energy!

  • If you are travelling to Sighnaghi then take the short trip to Bodbe monastery. The old church and tower are worth a look but so is the new church under construction. The exterior is almost finished but the interior is yet to be started.
  • The Monastery of St. Nino at Bodbe. From Tbilisi, 105 km.
  • Astonishing place!
  • Monastery of St. Nino at Bodbe is a Georgian Orthodox monastic complex.
