  • Royal Castle Batoniscihe is the best, in my opinion, the place in the old Telavi. This architectural complex, with towers, walls, massive gates. With the surrounding hillocks it is possible to examine the entire fortress and make excellent pictures. Inside the fortress, there are two small churches, however, one quite plain, clearly in need of a thorough restoration. And the Palace of Heraclius, King of Kakheti. They say that somewhere in the fortress there are tunnel, but we haven't got into it because of the repairs.

  • Telavi fortress, built in the late 18th century, when Irakli II. Popularly called "batonis-tsihe", and the word "Batonis" is the genitive case of the word "Sir". You can stroll around the walls at convenient sidewalks. Or be photographed against the backdrop of monument of erekle II, who joined Georgia to Russia. Reconstruction inside the fortress existed. In advance read historical background about this Georgian Tsar and telavskoj fortress-moves in mysterious ways.
