Mtskheta is a small town close to Tiblisi. The town is the spiritual centre of Georgia and have several old churches. The largest church is the cathedral of Sveti Tskhoveli (in the picture), which was built between 1010 ? 1029. The ceiling is high and there are nice frescos inside the church. It is said that this is the place where Christ?s robe was buried, after it had been brought from Jerusalem by Elias.
On my way walking to Samtravo I passed a small museum with some archaeological finds. I was the only visitor and I don?t think I had to pay any entrance.
To go to Mtskheta I took a marshrutka (minibus) from Didube bus station in Tiblisi. The journey takes only 30 minutes and in June 2003 it was 0.80 lari.
