T'bilisi Things to Do: 222 reviews and 622 photos


Metechi Church is located on the other side of the river Mtkvari. Make sure to go up there. Church is old (though do not know how old :-) ). It used to be a theatre during the Communists and there was a prison next to it where Stalin was imprisoned for some time. The prison was demolished in the 50s.

Going inside hcurch does not cost anything, though make sure not to wear shorts as sometimes priests may consider it as a blasphemy (with what I disagree but...)

Directions: It is very close from Old Town

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
