  Tsaminda Sameba on the hill above Kazbegi
by MalenaN

Above Kazbegi, and the village Gergeti, at an altitude of 2170 metres, Tsaminda Sameba stands on a hilltop. The silhouette of the church against the sky looks really nice.
From Kazbegi it takes about one and a half hour to walk up to the church. I was there in the end of June and the meadows were in full bloom. It is a beautiful walk with the meadows, the birch forest and the mountains (the highest of them Mt Kazbeg) around.
The church was built in the 14th century, but the tower added later. It is locked so if you want to have a look inside you should pick up the key from the caretaker in Gergeti village on your way up.
