Tour description provided by Viator

Borjomi does not have such an ancient history as the cave town of Uplistsikhe. But the place is known for its curative springs and a short but interesting history. Tour in Borjomi from Tbilisi for one day, it is quite real.
The tour begins with a visit to the monastery temple of Jvari, immortalized in literature by Mikhail Lermontov (poem "Mtsyri") (6-7 cc.). From the temple there is a fascinating view of the city of Mtskheta. Then visit the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral, the second largest church in Georgia. The cathedral has always been the heart of the Georgian church and is so today. Then you will go to Uplistsikhe, an ancient cave city, one of the oldest settlements in Georgia. The city-castle fascinates with its unusual appearance. Like giant pores on the rocks, the cave grottos gap, inside which life once boiled.members of the Russian imperial family and cultural figures: Josef Stalin, Maxim Gorky, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Georgy Dimitrov and others. A walk in the park with a tasting of natural mineral waters. Stepping on the cable car to the observation platform, from which you will enjoy the view of the entire Borjomi Gorge.
