  • Very beautiful place. Were here in a spooky fog when seen only at a distance of 0.5 meters. The impression that you are in a fairy tale. Despite the vagaries of nature, in the monastery there was a lot of people. Parking near the monastery was occupied by midnight. We recommend a visit to this place.

  • The monastery, which buried St. Nino, a holy place, incredibly pleasant feeling after the visit here.

  • A hugely rewarding visit including both the fabulous natural setting and highly moving spiritual exploration. The frescoes inside the church are probably the best-preserved ones in this area. A must.  more »

  • 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.
