Gergeti Trinity Church, Stepantsminda

Must see · Church · Tourist Spot
One of Georgia's most iconic sights, Gergeti Trinity Church sits on a mountain top surrounded by vast stretches of rolling hills and valleys. Depending on the season, it features only a few colors, from grass and sky, to snow and rugged cliffs in the background.

View the 14th-century red stone Orthodox church from up-close and snap photos of the majestic site. Be sure to dress comfortably for this rugged windy place.

  • highly recommend to have at least one night stay around Kazbegi, you can hire a local car to climb on hill. It's very nice 360 degree view you can see very small village below.  more »
  • Very very touristic. The path by foot, steep up, apparently is beautiful. I walked along the autoroute because of vertigo. It can be a beautiful place, but I prefer places with less tourism. Good views though.
  • What a stunning place. Surrounded by snowy mountains and icy winds. But the best part is that, inside the church, it's so warm. It's a wonder how they built such a massive and beautiful structure atop a mountain, using the finest of stones. Totally worth the visit.
  • Simply amazing place. Fascinating view! You will definitely love this place. Visited this place in mid 2019 April
  • Download for the hike path. Google maps isn’t totally accurate. Great hike up, but very steep. You can also hire a taxi that will bring you to the top.
  • Amazing place. Rather difficult to get to in Winter but well worth the trek. Established as a stronghold in an imposing and strategic position and also used as a place to hide treasure from invaders from the South. An absolutely impenetrable position for any invaders.
