Cultural sights
Kvemo Kartli
  • Kvemo Kartli (“kwemo“ - the lower one) is historically one of the most important regions of Georgia. This is a region whose artifacts give a clearer outline of the European identity of Georgians. This is an area where a century ago two independent cultures, Georgian and German, merging with each other, have survived to this day. The land where every monument, church, monastery, every carving is the response of a rich Georgian culture.


Why should you travel with us?

  • In order to open a new culture, to make a journey into the past and to feel the charm of assimilation of cultures, to imagine clearly the reality in which the Germans built their culture on a foreign land with reverence, caressing every stone as a native one, and this particular spirit is still clearly felt in Bolnisi.

Important information

  • Bolnisi Zion (Sioni) is the oldest temple of the V century, which is located in the village of Bolnisi and is an important monument of Georgian architecture, since it was Bolnisi Zion that preserved for us the oldest inscription on the alphabet “asomtavruli“ and the Bolnisi Cross.
  • The Peter and Paul Church, which became for Bolnisi the most important event of the immediate past, as another religious center was added to already existing churches and temples. Rising to the skies, a magnificent temple like a pearl adorns Mount Elias, where Kvemo Kartli is entirely visible like on the palm of the hand, filling visitors with indelible impressions.
  • The Bolnisi Museum of Local History is a place where the past of this city is carefully represented. The museum stores all literary, creative or working materials, with which the Germans created a unique culture in the place of Bolnisi and left as an example to the Georgian people.
  • Bolnisi is a city that for a century has been a place of residence for Germans in the neighborhood with Georgians. Escaped from adversity, the Germans settled on the flavoured territory of Bolnisi, founded the commune Katharinenfeld, where everything was created with great work and love, as evidenced by the almost extant homes, huge wine cellars and water mills.
