  • In Georgia, there are many churches, fortresses and monasteries, it is much more interesting to visit. And the No. 1 entertainment in Kakheti Alaverdi is clearly not pulls. Probably running effect of first impressions, as for example Gergeti in Stepancminde-all go past it, leave feedback, and then tourists are distributed throughout Georgia. in Alaverdi we were in 2015. First us there not allowed-was closed for lunch. We whiled away time in the Café opposite-it's awful. There is almost no menu, specialty ice cream is a terrible mixture of butter and frozen condensed milk. Café sharpened to sell branded wine on the wild price-80 and 100 lari per bottle. Wine, by the way very mediocre-it looks like the lion's share of the cost is payment for religion. After lunch, we again tried to enter, but not the monk spoke Russian, we were not given to carry the camera I was wearing pants and a t-shirt, but I am not allowed, because the shirt was needed. In General, we turned around and left. I understand that the alien monastery with its Charter ... but IMHO, God, if there is one, must be still, dressed man, the more that comes into this world and leaves him a man without any rags.

  • Wanted to get into the Cathedral of St. George in Alaverdi (the second highest Cathedral in Georgia), but was a terrible storm, and eventually we arrived at the monastery only to 7 pm. Of course everything was already closed (they are open till 6 pm). We are upset and decided not just trapped in this holy place, then at least silently sit on rocks at the entrance, so much so that the downpour had ended, and appeared on the horizon a bright streak the sky. Suddenly the gate opens and enters monk-Father George and said: "I pray to the Lord and suddenly thought, suddenly who came, you should go see it!". So we got to the Temple of St. George, where the relics of one of 13 Assyrian fathers-Joseph Alaverdijskogo, and received not only from the tour of George's father, but also a blessing. Very blissful place.

  • Approaching the Cathedral I was impressed. It is stunning and the Cathedral itself once inside is massive. On the day I was there I could not walk around as they were doing maintenance work around the...  more »
