Today we drive to Gori – the heart of Kartli region and visit Uplistsikhe Cave Town (1st millennium BC). That’s the place where the Great Silk Road used to pass. This is an old and interesting complex with dwelling quarters, wine-cellars, bakeries, a three-nave basilica church hewn out in rock and even an antic theatre. Gori is the birthplace of Stalin. Here we’ll visit his house and museum as well.
Drive up the famous Georgian Military Highway in the Great Caucasus Mountains. On the way, visit Ananuri architectural complex (17th century). The two churches and the fortress overlook the Zhinvali reservoir. The drive is very scenic through the high Caucasus Mountains
