Important information

  • Khertvisi Fortress is a medieval fortress located in Javakheti, in the village of Khertvisi, at the confluence of the Paravani and Kura rivers. From a high cliff the fortress to this day rises with old greatness above the villages. The fortress consists of a citadel and a fence. The fact that during the eastern campaigns of Alexander the Great in the 20s of IV century BC, along with other cities-fortresses of Georgia, he visited and Khertvisi, doubles the importance and value of the fortress.
  • The city-fortress Vardzia, carved in the rock, is a precious pearl of Georgian history, culture and religion. Vardzia is a valuable creation of the Georgian people, which to this day enraptures the modern world society. The complex is a monument of the X-XII centuries and includes 120 residential caves, 25 wine cellars, 185 vessels “kvevri“ - these numbers clearly indicate its scale and importance. Vardzia for each visitor is associated with unforgettable emotions and impressions.
