In the morning we visit Kutaisi market. This is a place where we become an integral part of local daily life. Here we find Georgian spices, fruits, vegetables, cheese and other natural products. Then we drive to visit Gelati Monastery Complex (12th century), one of the oldest educational centers in Europe, which also combines several churches and the tomb of the greatest king of Georgia – David the Builder.
This Georgian architectural ensemble with its beautiful paintings is deservedly included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. For lunch, we stop at a local family, where we will be hosted by local lady, who shows us how to cook different traditional Georgian dishes. After lunch, drive to Borjomi spa town – famous with its mineral water “Borjomi”. Visit the small park and try mineral water.
