  • Gergeti Trinity Church is located at an altitude of 2 170 m at the foot of Mount Kazbek. My advice to climb on foot, because the only way you can feel the incredible vitality and energy climbing up towards the Church. The Church itself is something magical, osvechivaetsja only candles coming people, all that you have asked for in this church will come true!

  • A place that should be visited if you are in Georgia. Inside the church you feel part of history. Advise!

  • Amazimg place. The curch is beautiful and the landscape is truely amazing. Must visit place in georgia.
  • The hike took us 1.5 hours, the scenery on the way was amazing. I recommend to walk to the church as it is not hard.
  • The most iconic church of Georgia stood on a small mountain. Young and fit one can walk up to the church from the Kazbegi town for about 75 minute one way. It is also possible to hire a jeep to go up the church. The walking experience is good and the scenery is perfect. Bring a water bottle and you can fill it up when u arrive the top. The church only allowed men in long pants and women in long skirt. No pants are rented for men here but some skirts are borrowed to women for free. No photos are allowed to be taken inside the church.
  • Beautiful place. The views from up there are amazing. Highly recommended.
  • Wonderful place, magnific view, bumpy road up here or a 3h hiking but worth it!
