A land of stalactites and legends

Our journey to the historical region of Imereti will begin with a sightseeing tour of the city of Kutaisi - the former capital of the Imeretian kingdom and the second largest city in Georgia.
On the route you will visit one of the main sightseeing of Kutaisi - the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin, or, as it is commonly called here, the Bagrat temple. The cathedral was built in the 11th century and is included in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List.
After lunch we will go to the Gelati Monastery, founded by David the Builder.In his will, the king ordered to bury himself and his descendants in Gelati, thereby establishing a special status for the monastery.
Lunch at one of the restaurants in Kutaisi. The cost of lunch is paid by tourists on their own.
Further along the route you will visit the Sataplia nature reserve, founded more than 75 years ago. In the reserve, you will take an underground walk through a karst cave, the maximum length of which reaches 900 meters, and the height of the vault is 400. Then, climb Mount Sataplia and enjoy the panoramic views from the horseshoe-shaped glass observation deck.
Your excursion day will end with a visit to the famous Prometheus cave, located near the city Tskhaltubo. This underground natural monument with a river, lake and waterfall was discovered in 1984 and opened to the public in 2010. The journey under the vaults of the cave is accompanied by quiet music and play of light. Huge halls filled with stalactites and stalagmites of the most bizarre shapes and colors will open before you.
