  • Sighnaghi has proved to be a little fairy-tale village in Kakheti specially prepared for tourists. Here historical monuments so scrubbed and refurbished Center so saturated with modern sculptures and buildings "antique", that the impression of toy town in snuff, or film. However, there are many in sighnaghi, that show! And the first burial place of St. Nino, enlightener of Georgia, came here on behalf of the mother of God from Cappadocia! By the way, at a local cafeteria prepares and serves nuns of this monastery.

  • 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.
  • Must see place
