1st highlight: Jvari Cross Monastery
After breakfast we start with a visit to the cross monastery "Jvari". This beautiful building is visible in the idyllic hills and is considered the oldest cross-domed church in the country. As such, it was the model for numerous religious buildings in Georgia. The view of the fantastic surroundings is just as delightful as the walk through the interior of the pretty building.
2nd highlight: Ananuri Fortress
This exciting building complex is located above the beautiful Shinwali reservoir and, with its moving history, is one of the most beautiful attractions in the region. However, the visit is worthwhile not only because of the historical fortress, but also because of the beautiful landscape. In the middle of hills and forests, the lake is a unique sight.
3rd highlight: Pasanauri village
Here the two rivers Aragvi (the white and the black) converge. We take a break and enjoy a relaxed lunch.
4th highlight: "Trinity Church"
The journey continues through the picturesque resort of Gudauri towards the village of Stepantsminda. We drive up the mountain in jeeps to this mysterious domed church, of which there is no evidence of its construction. The church is said to have been built in the 14th century and has remained virtually unchanged since then. Not only interesting decorations on an old stone masonry, but also a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscapes await us.
